Located near downtown Sarasota and Siesta Key, Phillippi Estate Park has high visibility from US-41/Tamiami Trail. Each day the park welcomes thousands of seasonal tourists and affluent local residents to see concerts, attend cultural events, music festivals, and a weekly farmers market. The picturesque setting with its expansive lawn, gazebo, and large parking area makes this the perfect location for our quality art shows.

Event hours are Saturday, 10-5 and Sunday, 10-5. Friday move-in; plenty of great food, music and fun for all.
