THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO APPLIED TO PARTICIPATE!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU NEXT YEAR!
Due to the stay-at-home order and recommendations by the CDC regarding large events, our two-day Florida Luxe Arts Festival has been cancelled for this year, but will be held in the Spring of 2021.
However, even without the two-day festival portion of the event, we are still committed to ensuring murals are painted this year. Because of the uncertain nature of this virus, we do not know precisely when the murals will be painted, but we hope to start them in the coming months.
Instead of having all the murals painted at once, the murals will likely be scheduled so only one or two are happening at a time. If you applied to be a muralist, please be patient with us. As we learn more about when we can start, we will begin reaching out to you.
If you applied to be a chalk artist, busker, or volunteer, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We will reach back out as we have more information about next year's festival to see if you are still interested in participating.
We look forward to seeing you all next year! Thank you to everyone for your understanding and stay safe out there!
Murals will be painted in one week, but the real fun starts at the end of the week. That's when the chalk painting, music, vendor booths, food trucks, and some fun art surprises after the sun sets. Stay tuned for more details!
DOWNTOWN PANAMA CITY, FL
The base of the festival will be located behind the Martin Theatre on Grace Avenue, but murals, art installations, and vendor booths can be found throughout downtown, so be sure to explore the area!
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
This will be the first year of what we hope will be an annual arts festival that will grow to be a national destination.
The festival will combine murals, music, street painting, art and food vendors, projection art, and light installations to make up the Florida Luxe Arts Festival, or Flluxe for short.
Local, national, and perhaps even international artists will be featured painting murals, creating chalk art in the streets, performing music in the streets, and as projection artists.
Come watch the artists paint their murals throughout the week, and then join us for a celebration of art in 2021.
These are our amazing sponsors so far! We can't thank them enough for helping us create a colorful downtown and an amazing event for the community.
