One of the best things about living in Northern Palm Beach County -- Jupiter, Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, North Palm Beach, Singer Island, Juno Beach, Tequesta or West Palm Beach -- is the abundance of festivals and art shows available. Each year, Jupiter hosts one of the most anticipated events of the year: ArtiGras in the family-friendly Abacoa community. This 3-day nationally recognized fine arts festival is a beloved tradition for local residents as well as a “daycation destination” for Floridians within a few hours’ drive. And, it’s one of the top-50 ranked premier art shows in the nation!
Dates are: February 17, 18, & 19
