A mission to support, encourage, and showcase the work of local artists
Showcase your work in beautiful Key West, Florida this winter! In 2021, The Key West Craft Show celebrates 36 years as one of Key West's iconic cultural events among affluent island locals and world-wide travelers. Located in beautiful Old Town Key West running along two blocks of Whitehead Street between Greene & Eaton Streets and onto Caroline Street, through the historic Presidential Gates into a beautiful tree lined street in a prestigious private community know as Truman Annex.
The Key West Craft Show is sponsored by The Key West Art Center, a nonprofit community art center. The show has grown from a local to a national juried show and attracts nearly 25,000 visitors in the two-day event including locals, winter residents and tourists. Proceeds from the show help support the programs of the Art Center as well as maintain the historic building that houses their gallery at 301 Front Street, in historic Old Town Key West. The show accepts approximately 100 exhibitors. Our concentration is in fine crafts, however, we strive to provide a variety of artistic media to the public and patrons in an effort to make The Key West Craft Show both a high-quality art experience and a broad exposure to art.
"Once again, thanks for a wonderful show. It exceeded our expectations, you put on the best show in Florida." — Sheko Kirby, 2020 Jewelry Artist
