Naples Art in the Park 2019 – Last Show of the Season

If you desire to see beautiful works of art while enjoying the gorgeous Southwest Florida weather, there’s just one place to go: Cambier Park.

Naples National Art Festival 2019

Henri Matisse reportedly once said “Creativity takes courage.” Ralph Waldo Emerson declared “Every artist was first an amateur.” And, of course, Bob Ross famously stated on his PBS television show “We don’t make mistakes. Just happy little accidents.” Art is just as important as math and science to creating a world worth living in. Creativity should be nurtured and encouraged. You can do both when you attend the Naples National Art Festival 2019.

Dozens of talented artists from all over the country compete in the juried Naples National Art Festival 2019 at Cambier Park. Support their talents by visiting the festival.

Naples National Art Festival 2019

Literally, thousands of people visit Cambier Park each year for the Naples National Art Festival. As a juried art show, it attracts some of the finest artists from around the country. They vie for cash prizes in 18 different categories in a wide variety of mediums, such as painting, sculpture, jewelry, wood, and metal. The quality of work displayed here helped last year’s Naples National Art Festival rank in the top 25 of Sunshine Artist Magazine’s Best Classic & Contemporary Art Shows. It also made the top 50 of ArtFairCalendar.com’s America’s Best Art Fairs.

New for this year, the festival includes a live performance by the Blu-Tones on Saturday. In fact, Saturday’s hours have been extended specifically to bring their music to the public. This Naples-based band plays rock-n-roll hits from the ’50s to the ’70s, Elvis to The Eagles. You’re going to love them! Also, local favorites Artichoke and Co and Naples Smoked BBQ provide tasty treats for sale. When thirst hits, quench it with beverages from The Wine Store and Rip Tide Brewery.
