The biggest art festival on the Space Coast has found a new home at Wickham Park. The 33rd Annual Melbourne Art Festival draws thousands from across Brevard County to experience unique artwork from hundreds of artists.

Last year’s festival featured over 250 artists from across the country, displaying a host of 2-D and 3-D art, some of which were for sale and others that were entered in the overall competition. The festival is from April 22 – 23.
