Tampa partner Eric Page was recently a guest speaker on Daytime TV’s CW Tampa Bay (WFLY-TV News Channel 8) to discuss opportunities for local businesses and individuals at the upcoming Gasparilla Festival of the Arts.
In its 54th year, the Gasparilla Festival of the Arts (GFA) is one of American’s most attended and respected art shows. During the televised segment, Eric and his fellow GFA board member spoke about sponsorship opportunities and the festival’s purchase program. Eric specifically explained the significance of the Collector’s Krewe, a purchase program allowing people to put dollars into the event beforehand, which helps to promote the festival to attending artists. Eric currently serves as Co-chair of the Development Committee for Gasparilla Festival of the Arts and has been a member of the organization’s board of directors since 2021.
The Gasparilla Festival of the Arts is recognized as one of the top-rated outdoor fine art festivals in the country. The festival is always the first weekend in March and this year will be held March 2-3, 2024, at the beautiful Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park in downtown Tampa. Each year, up to 235 artists are selected through a juried process to exhibit their work for art enthusiasts and vie for over $92,000 in award money, including the $15,000 Raymond James Best of Show Award and an additional 38 awards. The Festival is free to the public and attracts an estimated 30,000 visitors.
