The service is free, but a donation to the Big Dog Ranch Rescue is appreciated.

Emerging Artists: This area of the festival will feature 10 fabulous artists from the Palm Beach area who are exhibiting in an outdoor art festival for the first time. These artists have been through a vigorous training program with ArtiGras event staff and other artist experts over the past six months. Patrons will be able to enjoy and purchase art that has been created in their “own backyard.”
Music at the Main Stage: Varied musical entertainment will be featured throughout the day including jazz, R&B, and island music. The stage will be located near the Food Court location at University and Central Blvd.
