35th Annual Springfest on Anna Maria Island

| Suncoast Post Staff |

The mission of Anna Maria Island Art League is to encourage emerging and evolving artists of all ages through education and to enrich our community through the promotion and celebration of the arts. The League promotes emerging artists and sponsors events and activities to support the arts. This year we are partnering with businesses on the island to promote the 2023 YOUNG AT ART CHILDREN’S EXHIBIT at our 35th Annual Springfest Fine Arts Festival, March 18th and 19th, at Holmes Beach City Field.
