2023 Call for Artists
LABOR DAY WEEKEND | SEPTEMBER 2 - 3, 2023
METROPOLITAN PARK - WATERFRONT PARK DOWNTOWN JACKSONVILLE
COME CREATE AN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER!
We are thrilled to bring two jam-packed days of world-class live entertainment, authentic cuisine from over 40+ taco makers, margarita and tequila sampling stations, local artist & makers village, games, and more at this year’s Jacksonville Taco & Tequila Festival! This celebration of creativity, community and culture benefits several local Jacksonville nonprofits committed to the arts, community enrichment, and education here on the First Coast!
A vital part of the experience is infusing arts and culture throughout the festival where attendees can observe & connect with some of the area's artists as they showcase their unique talents. A limited number of artist vendor opportunities are also available. This open Call for Artists is in partnership with the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville, and we invite artists of a variety of disciplines to participate in an event that drew over 20,000 attendees last year!

Visual Arts: Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, etc.
