RACE FESTIVITIES AND GOODIES
The Publix Run to the Arts Fun Run kicks off Sunday morning February 6th. Your registration fee guarantees you a spot in the fun run as well as runners-only goodies.
You'll get your very own Run to the Arts t-shirt with beautiful art by an ArtFest Fort Myers artist. Your choice of styles -- standard straight-cut with crew neck OR ladies fitted cut, with v-neck. Both styles are made of the same great high-performance quick-dry fabric.
Want the swag and none of the sweat? Register for the No-K for $30. Enjoy the event and get the t-shirt without having to participate in the 5K.
T-SHIRTS WHILE SUPPLIES LAST
Beautiful new 2022 T-shirt by artist Roger Van Lieshout! He will be at ArtFest Fort Myers 2022, or visit him at VanLieshoutArt.com.
Your race bib is your ticket to the post-race breakfast, featuring tasty Publix treats - muffins & bagels with all the trimmings, fruit, & yogurt.
ART & ENTERTAINMENT
Enjoy live music and be the first to sneak a peek at the artist booths on Sunday morning, even before the festival opens to the public.
