Coconut Grove Art Festival Comes Back Bigger Than Ever This Weekend

Coconut Grove Art Festival Comes Back Bigger Than Ever This Weekend

Posted by Liliana Castaño on February 14, 2014

Miami's longest-running art showcase is back and bigger than ever. The 51st-Annual Coconut Grove Art Festival opens this weekend, and they've been busily preparing to welcome 380 local, national, and international artists, plus an expected 150,000 attendees. Not bad for a gathering that started as a "clothes-line" show.

This is culturally-rich fun the whole family can enjoy, and there's a lot more on the schedule than just gawking at stuffy paintings. This year, they're bringing fine art in all manner of mediums, music, food, performing arts, charity benefits, and more.

Peruse the art and work up an appetite. You're going to want to eat all you can. The Culinary Pavilion hosts local Eating House's Giorgio Rapicavoli and Food Network's "Chopped" star Paulette Bilsky who will be cooking up demonstrations starting at 11 a.m. You know you could stand to learn a trick or two from these masters.
