Past grants and awards
Our History…People grow up and so do art shows. The Suncoast Arts Fest has shown remarkable promise ever since its “birth” in 2005. Many changes have been made over the last 8 shows and we would love to share some of its highlights with you:
Yet some things remain the same…
The 10th annual Suncoast Arts Fest 2015 will be held January 17 and 18, 2015 in the centrally located, quaint “small town” environment of The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel, Florida.
This is an upscale venue just off of I-75 in the northern part of the Tampa Bay area. A winding, cobblestone main street edged with trees provides the perfect venue for art lovers to browse through tents filled with fine art and select their purchases.
Last year over 100,000 people patronized The Shops at Wiregrass the weekend of the Arts Fest.
All proceeds from the Suncoast Arts Fest benefit “Arts for Kids,” a grant fund created by our parent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, Fine Arts of the Suncoast, Inc., go to supplement arts education funding in area public, private and charter schools in Pasco County.
Over the past decade, the Suncoast Arts Fest has fulfilled more than 85 mini-grants to teachers to impact the education of more than 15,000 students. In 2014 alone, the awarded grants assisted 24 schools in the Pasco County school district.
