Don’t Miss this two weekend event beginning tonight, November 2, 2018. artsHOP is an annual three-day event celebrating a diverse selection of local arts, theatre shows, crafts, music and food. Quench your Arts and cultural thirst while visiting Anna Maria Island with an art walk and entertainment. This event is sponsored by local businesses and the Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
