DUNEDIN, FL — November 5-6, 2022: Nearly 200 artists will gather at Highlander Park in Dunedin on Saturday and Sunday, November 5 and 6, 2022, from 10 am to 5 pm, to raise funding for families in need in the Tampa Bay community.
The annual Art Harvest held on the first weekend in November at Highlander Park in Dunedin started over 57 years ago by the Junior League of Clearwater-Dunedin (JLCD as a small arts gathering to help build a long-lasting impact on the growing number of families battling chronic hunger and poverty, but has evolved into a highly respected juried show of high-quality art with balanced media featuring nearly 200 artists.
It has become one of the largest autumn art shows in the Tampa Bay area drawing nearly 30,000 people of all ages annually. This family-friendly event will feature various artists’ booths, food vendors, and a children’s area with art activities.
“Each year, it warms my heart to see the number of talented artists who give their time and resources to reach out to families in our community that need food and essential items,” Mitton said. JLCD has helped me connect with the people I would have never met if I had not been part of this organization.”
The Junior League of Clearwater and Dunedin, a nonprofit organization with over 400 women committed to making a difference in the community, has been a driving force behind initiatives and institutions that make our community a healthier, more vital place to live. JLCD currently impacts the community through various projects, such as awarding community and education grants and legislative advocacy. Since its inception in 1948, the members have raised more than one million dollars and contributed over one million volunteer hours to their local community.
Dedicated community partners have helped the event raise nearly $85,000 in the last five years. Art Harvest is partially sponsored by Publix Charities and the City of Dunedin. Proceeds from the event will help fund community projects to assist families.
