In 2013, the Sarasota Fine Art Festival enjoyed steady crowds and strong sales both Saturday and Sunday, attracting wealthy Americans and Europeans alike. Patrons were inquisitive, inspired and purchased art. The event is held on Gulfstream Ave, a location parallel to and visible from Hwy 41 making this the premium location in Sarasota. Data collected from the artists at the 2013 inaugural event assures that this will be a Top 100 event in the national ranking systems going into 2014. The Sarasota Fine Art Festival will remain a boutique show (under 115 artists).
