The Annual Fifth Avenue Arts Festival began in the summer of 1979 when a group of University of Florida students and community residents joined together to organize an event to share and promote the rich cultural history of the Fifth Avenue/Seminary Lane community. That first year, fewer than 100 people attended. Lavern Porter Dancers were the first performers.
Years later, the Festival has grown and now regularly hosts more than 20,000 people each year. The event has historically featured three days of performance and visual arts. Local businesses and organizations are invited to set up booths on Saturday and Sunday to provide information about opportunities for both youth and adults in the community. This year, the festival is going virtual. We plan to offer the same vendor and entertainment opportunities in a virtual format.
