49th Annual Space Coast Art Festival
The Space Coast Art Festival is one of the op art festivals in the Southeast. Accomplished artists from around the nation flock to the Space Coast every Thanksgiving weekend to display their art. The festival includes the Thanksgiving morning Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving morning and a Friday night meet and greet reception with the festival judges (for ticket holders). The main art show begins on Saturday morning at 9am to 5pm in Downtown Cocoa Beach and continues through Sunday from 10am to 5pm.
The Space Coast Art Festival includes several fun and family friendly things to do such as the Margaret Heins Student Art Show (located on the grassy lot on South Brevard Avenue) where you will have the opportunity to view the work of many young artists from throughout Brevard County, children’s hands-on art, face-painting and live entertainment throughout the weekend.
There is always a wide variety of food and drink to choose from in the centrally located festival food court and at the surrounding local restaurants. A free Park-and-Ride service will be available at the Cape Royal Building and limited spaces (50 spots) at the Hilton Hotel in Cocoa Beach.
