ChamberSOUTH Art Festival comes to town

Produced by ChamberSOUTH, the 43rd Annual ChamberSOUTH South Miami Art Festival is sponsored in part by presenting sponsor First National Bank of South Miami, and receives support from the Miami-Dade County Cultural Affairs Department and the City of South Miami.

The location and timing of the festival make it an ideal destination for holiday shoppers looking for the perfect gift for the special people in their lives. Neighboring restaurants and shops support the show by offering special pricing and extended hours for the weekend.

The event will include over 100 artist booths from around the world representing media such as ceramics and clay; digital art; textiles; glass; jewelry and metalwork; two dimensional mixed media; three-dimensional mixed media; painting; photography; printmaking and drawing; sculpture; and wood. International food vendors featuring a wide array of cuisine will be available. In addition, the festival will have musical entertainment including performances from Area Stage Company, Miami Children’s Chorus, jazz group The French Horn Collective (presented by South Miami- Dade Cultural Arts Center), and others.

ChamberSOUTH is working in conjunction with The Shops at Sunset Place and the Simon Youth Foundation to provide a children’s section with interactive activities for families.

The ChamberSOUTH South Miami Art Festival is well known in the region as one of the premium fine art shows in the country. This is a free, family friendly event and is open to the general public. Even though parking is available around the art festival, event organizers suggest taking the Metrorail to the South Miami station, located directly across the street from the event.
