Our never ending goal is to continue to make this area known for the creatives who live in and work in our community all year round. All of the music is local and the art is fresh.

The Distillery Tavern, JJ Taylor and Cigar City Brewery have donated craft beer for the event. Proceeds support the Artists Guild of Manatee, and a portion will go to the artists for donating their time. While that is going on inside, the Village of the Arts galleries will be featuring the premium dishes inside.
