The 38th Annual Cape Coral Arts Festival & Market Place, hosted by the Rotary Club of Cape Coral, is ramping up for their highly anticipated event January 14-15, 2023. Even though Hurricane Ian heavily impacted the downtown area of Cape Coral, the
Rotary Club of Cape Coral is looking forward to kicking off the new year with something fun for everyone.

“The Art Festival & Market Place is the biggest event our organization puts on yearly, “ says Rotary Club of Cape Coral President Bob Welsh. “The money we raise goes back to the local community to support organizations such as the Cape Coral Caring Center and Special Populations. These funds also support projects like Rotary Park and the School Bus Bench Project, which launched after the 2019 death of 8-year-old Layla Aiken. This event is more than just an Art Festival, it is how we serve our community, and it’s something we look forward to every year”.

The Market Place is open and accepting applications for businesses interested in participating in the art festival. To submit your application, please visit
