The Ocala Arts Festival has been voted as one of the most loved events in our community. Artists are chosen by an independent panel of four judges. There are 155 artists from all over the United States bringing their beautiful pieces to downtown Ocala, Florida. The Art Festival is produced by an all-volunteer board and draws more than 25,000 visitors each year.
