“ArtiGras’ spent many years in Palm Beach Gardens both at the Gardens Mall location and off of RCA Blvd. We are thrilled to be back and couldn’t have asked for a better location in the Gardens North County District Park,” said Noel Martinez, CEO and President of the Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce. “ArtiGras is an economic driver in the North County area with an impact of more than $2.8 million. With all the current construction on Central Boulevard, the timing was right for the return of the festival to Gardens.”





Palm Beach County has begun road construction at and past the intersection of Central Boulevard and University Boulevard in Jupiter at the exact location of where ArtiGras has been staged for two decades. This presented ArtiGras organizers with a challenge, and it was decided that a change of venue was needed. After a thorough search, an alternate location in the City of Palm Beach Gardens at the Gardens North County District Park was found.





“Art has long been a big part of our City’s identity. That dedication has been showcased in many ways over the years, so this is a great fit,” said Palm Beach Gardens Mayor Carl Woods. “We couldn’t be more excited to be the host city for ArtiGras and we look forward to not only welcoming our residents and visitors, but also providing a platform for artists who need our support.”
