About the Space Coast Art Festival 

Space Coast Art Festival (SCAF), is a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization governed by an all volunteer Board of Directors. In 1963, a small group of artists and local community leaders, formed the first "Cocoa Beach Sidewalk Art Show". In 1972 the Organization incorporated to become the Space Coast Art Festival and the event date of Thanksgiving Weekend was established. In 2014, after 50 years of outstanding festivals, the festival site moved to Port Canaveral, FL due to the size of the show and space constrictions.This year, 2017, the SCAF will take place in the beautiful Manatee Sanctuary Park on the riverfront in the City of Cape Canaveral.
