Guest Artist status will allow you to set up at Sunset for a 14 day window until our next jury meeting.
Set Up as a Trial or Guest Artist at Sunset
Interested in direct access to thousands of potential customers in a completely hand crafted, open air market, 365 days a year? Are you an Artist or Maker visiting the Keys on vacation? Or perhaps you’re a local Artist or Maker who wants to “try it out” before committing to a full jury meeting? We are proud to announce we now have Guest Artist and Trial Artist programs available!
What’s the difference?
A Guest Artist is someone who perhaps is on vacation or is in the Keys for another Art and Craft Fair and wants to sell at the iconic Sunset Celebration for up to 14 consecutive days a year.
A Trial Artist is someone who lives in the Keys but is curious about the event and just wants to try it on for size before they commit to the full jury process. A trial artist may set up once for up to 3 consecutive days.
Both programs must meet the same criteria: the work must be made and sold by you; it must be original, creative and have artistic value; you must have a Florida Sales Tax ID; and you need to be able to provide photographs of you working on a piece, a picture of your set up and a photo of your studio/workspace.
Both programs are subject to any existing caps.

Thanks for your interest in Key West’s iconic Sunset Celebration, on the dock at Mallory Square.
