Children’s Activities

Coordinated by the Tampa Museum of Art, the Children’s Activity Area provides children the opportunity to learn techniques from artists. Kids can also color, paint and draw … and be real artists for a day!


Friends of the Museum sponsors the food court. Many other specialty vendors are also on-site providing food and beverages, with all proceeds benefiting the festival and the Tampa Museum of Art. If you are interested in being a food vendor, contact Jessica Raia-Long at info@gasparillaarts.com or 813.876.1747.


Each year, art patrons are encouraged to attend galaRE:, a premiere event, to view and purchase award-winning works from the festival. More information will be posted when galaRE: tickets become available.

Live Entertainment

In addition to works of art to view and purchase, the Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts features performances by local vocalists and bands. Stay tuned for this year’s lineup!
