From 45th annual Mainsail Art Festival Website:

The Mainsail Art Festival, a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers, celebrates its 45th year on Saint Petersburg's magnificent and scenic Vinoy Park waterfront. The festival's location is surrounded by upscale residences, unique galleries, charming shops, sidewalk cafes and a nearby entertainment complex. Drawing upwards of 100,000 festivalgoers each year, many savvy art collectors look forward to seeing more than 250 of the most accomplished artists from around the country who exhibit each year. Mainsail is considered one of the top juried art shows in the country, and is consistently ranked by Sunshine Artist Magazine as one of the Top 50 Fine Art & Design Shows in the country. Mainsail awards a total of $60,000 in prize money, including an award of $10,000 for Best of Mainsail Gold Award.

The 45th annual Mainsail Art Festival is one of Floridas most prestigious shows.

Saint Petersburgs downtown renaissance has transformed the citys bay front into a cultural and entertainment destination. Mainsails picturesque home in Vinoy Park is easily one of the most magnificent waterfront art festival venues in the country. Vinoy Park is surrounded by upscale residences, in a city rich in art museums (the Dali Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art), unique galleries and the Warehouse Arts District. Charming shops, casual outdoor dining at sidewalk cafes and the nearby Sundial entertainment complex all beckon savvy and well-versed art collectors who look forward each year to enjoying the best fine arts and fine crafts exhibited by artists from around the country. Delectable food from local restaurateurs, smooth jazz, country and pop entertainment, along with creative art activities for kids, makes this two-day celebration one of the bay areas most eagerly anticipated events.

Mainsails "Young at ARt" continues to grow. Look for the colorful "Young at ARt" banners to find Mainsails student exhibition featuring artwork from our Pinellas County public and private schools.
