The Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts is committed to the enhancement of the Tampa Bay area’s cultural arts. In keeping with our mission, we have created a new program with the support of the Gobioff Foundation, the Tampa Bay Local Artists Spotlight, that will help showcase local artists who are not part of the main festival show. Up to (3) spots will be awarded to local artists in the Tampa Bay area. Submissions are free and there are no booth costs. Interested artists submit for candidacy and then the public will vote on their favorites. In this inaugural year, we received over 36,000 votes! Thank you everyone for your participation! We look forward to next year.

We are proud to announce the GFA 2020 Tampa Bay Local Artists Spotlight Winners:
