SCAF Window PosterThe 53rd annual Space Coast Art Festival, held each year over Thanksgiving Weekend, will be November 26th and 27th, 2016. Saturday hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5p.m. The Festival is located once again at the Exploration Tower at Port Canaveral this year. This location offers spacious accommodations that allows us to create an artists’ booth layout that flows easily and will be more accessible to patrons. The venue also has abundant parking for artists and patrons, including trailers and RVs and is easily accessible from main interstate highways. There are numerous restaurants and hotels nearby, including a campground site – and is only 15 minutes North on A1A from our traditional location. SCAF feels that Port Canaveral is a great location that will accommodate artists and patrons while still maintaining the same quality that we have been proud of for over 50 years. The Space Coast Art Festival is pleased to host over 240 artists for this year’s festival.

As always, Space Coast Art Festival will provide free live entertainment from 10am-5pm both days for all to enjoy.

In order to provide the public with a layout of the Festival, we have posted the following map to our website (check back at a later date for updates). This map showcases the layout and location of our Festival. There will be plenty of free parking available within Port Canaveral and designated parking locations along A1A.

The Board members at Space Coast Art Festival are proud and excited to be a part of this year’s Festival. We look forward to a joyous Thanksgiving weekend that has been our tradition for the past 50 years!
