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’. Sponsored by the City of Cocoa Beach and supported by the Cocoa Beach Woman’s Club, the art show thrived for several years.
For the first 50 years of it’s existence, the Space Coast Art Festival was located in downtown Cocoa Beach. Starting in 2014, the show decided to relocate to Port Canaveral in and around the base of the Exploration Tower. In 2017, the show was once again relocated to Manatee Park in Cape Canaveral. In 2018, the show dates were changed to October (instead of Thanksgiving weekend). In recent years, the festival has found a new location at The Avenue Viera® in Viera, FL.
