Everfest's Take

From the Organizer

LeMoyne's Chain of Parks Art Festival, in its 22nd year, is the Big Bend Region's premiere outdoor fine art festival. Outdoor festival with Artists in the Parks on April 23-24, 2022. Located in downtown Tallahassee along Park Avenue, just east of Monroe Street, the festival is free and open to the public. Visitors view and purchase amazing one-of-a-kind works from 150 fine artists from all over the US while enjoying a weekend of fun, fine art, local culinary delights, children’s pop-up art studios, community partners and live entertainment. Art, culture and local heritage abound at the festival with reenactments of Jacques Le Moyne, the first European artist to visit Florida and sketch images of the natives and local flora and fauna, pop-up studios for children and adults to experience making art, the community's best entertainers on the stage and much more. Our 2022 Presenting Artists at FSU's Opening Nights is Lana Shuttleworth, artist working with up-cycled traffic cones, who will speak about her artist journey. This event takes place on Thursday, April 21. In honor of Earth Day, the festival will hold a workshop on making a rain barrel out of a plastic barrel including adding the fittings necessary and painting the barrel with professional artist teaching on Friday, April 22. The workshop will be held in person at the LeMoyne gardens in downtown Tallahassee. Usually held on the third weekend of April (on the 4th if the 3rd is Easter), the festival is held on Saturday from 10:00am-5:00pm and Sunday from 10:00am-4:00pm. A wide variety of local foods are offered by the region's food trucks and restaurants as well as a bar serving craft beer, wine, Mimosas, Bloody Mary's and more. Begun in 2001, the festival has grown each year adding more fun artful and cultural experiences for the whole family to enjoy. Now nationally ranked in the top 100 fine art and design shows in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine, for seven years in a row and #1 in 2017, making it a must visit for anyone living or visiting North Florida or South Georgia.
