About the event

The 24th Annual Chain of Parks Art Festival will be on April 20 & 21, 2024 FREE EVENT – No tickets are required Saturday, April 20: 10 am – 5 pm Sunday, April 21: 10 am – 4 pm Expect to have a first-class, fun-filled outdoor cultural experience at the Chain of Parks Art Festival, in downtown Tallahassee! View amazing, original, and one-of-a-kind works of art in a delightful Southern outdoor setting. Nationally ranked in the Top 100 Fine Art Festivals by Sunshine Artist Magazine for 11 years running, this annual two-day festival draws tens of thousands of people from the Big Bend Southeast region to see 150 artists who have traveled from all over the country to display their original fine art works. Known as the premier fine art event, visitors can view and purchase unique works of art while enjoying a weekend filled with a wide variety of live entertainment, mouth-watering culinary creations, libations served enthusiastically at the festival bar, local heritage re-enactments, family fun, interactive children’s art activities, professional chalk artists, and more! “The Chain of Parks Art Festival brings some of the nation’s top fine artists to the Capital City as a way to not only expand on the opportunity for regional art collectors but also introduce fine arts to those who may not have experienced it,” said Festival Chair Kelly Dozier. “The Festival committee and volunteers work hard to make this a fun and successful event for all, including the artists, and to be recognized among the top festivals in this way means the world to us.”

About the application

Thank you for your interest in participating in the Chain of Parks Art Festival!
Please be sure to scroll all the way down and read over all the information before applying as we have done our best to answer all your questions before you submit your application! This is an electronic agreement and by applying, you are validating and approving this agreement electronically.
The Children's Park is an area within the Festival that provides opportunities for community connections to an estimated 35-40,000+ enthusiastic visitors! The purpose of this area is to provide a fun place to get children excited about art and promote organizations that celebrate the arts and local heritage in our community. This area is comprised of Pop-Up Art Studios, Interactive Art Vendors, Heritage Booths, and the historical Jacques Le Moyne Encampment with live reenactments! The Children's Park is a shady area for families to rest, get creative, enjoy snack foods, sing along to live entertainment, experiment with chalk art, and more!
Over the last few years, visitors have been able to interact with the festival's namesake, Jacques Le Moyne, the first known European artist to sketch native Florida, in a 1560s living history encampment featuring actor interpretations and activities by Theater With A Mission. We would like to expand this educational offering to include other local heritage groups to tell their story!
What is a Local Heritage Booth? 
  • Located next to the Pop-up Studios (where organizations provide a children’s art activity and visually engaging booth), we will add several 10x10 white tents that are dedicated to sharing historical information about our region from different cultures. 
  • In celebration of Tallahassee's Bicentennial, we are primarily interested in featuring local and regional heritage. We want visitors to learn about the history of our beautiful city, so we are primarily looking for applications that relate back to different cultures within our community. 
  • Each tent should be decorated to represent your culture, offer educational materials, and an interactive activity of some kind.
