In its inaugural year in 2014 the Sarasota Spring Fine Art Festival had strong sales though crowds were limited as a result of traffic backups of event-goers coming to Sarasota from the Longboat Key area.
This show is held in Florida's "high-season", the time of peak tourism. The event is held on Gulf Stream Ave, a location parallel to and visible from Hwy. 41 making this the premium location in Sarasota. The Sarasota Spring Fine Art Festival will remain a boutique show (under 120 artists).
