Join Us in Supporting the Arts at the 4th Annual Brevard Plein Air Festival!

Heart of Brevard warmly invites you to partner with us in nurturing the rich arts community of downtown Brevard and its surrounding areas by sponsoring the upcoming 4th Annual Brevard.

The Brevard Plein Air Festival is a six-day celebration of outdoor painting, culminating in a vibrant Wet Paint Art Show & Sale on Saturday, September 14th, right in downtown Brevard. This event welcomes artists from across the region to capture the beauty of our town and surrounding areas.

New for 2024, we’re thrilled to introduce our Patron Preview and Reception on Friday night. This exclusive event offers attendees the chance to meet the artists and preview their works before they go on display at the Wet Paint Show.

At Heart of Brevard, we firmly believe in the strength of collaboration and partnership to cultivate creativity and enhance the arts scene both within our downtown district and throughout the wider county. Your sponsorship not only supports the hosting of engaging events but also strengthens our efforts to foster collaboration among artists, businesses, and the broader community.
