The Village of the Arts is an eclectic live-work community, home to galleries, studios, restaurants, bakeries, specialty shops and healing art centers housed in colorfully restored 1920s & 1930s historic cottages. The Village is known for its vibrant Art Walks the first Friday night & Saturday of every month. Individual business hours vary. Visit www.villageofthearts.com for more information.

The Artists Guild of Manatee was formed in 1999 as a non-profit with a mission to build a community where artists live and work while enhancing quality of life and creating a harmonious environment. The Guild is primarily made up of Village residents and business owners, along with community members who share our vision. Over the past sixteen years the Guild together with Village residents have worked hard to make the Village of the Arts a thriving place while enhancing the quality of neighborhood life and nurturing the creative spirit.

The Village is an eclectic mix of early 20th century residential bungalows, Florida Cracker homes, and later additions. The neighborhood features a legal commercial overlay, which enables a rare live/work/play mix. Village boundaries stretch from 9th Ave West to 17th Ave West between 9th St West and 14th St West. Over 275 individual properties are within the Village. McKechnie Field, voted Florida’s best minor league ballpark is a block away, and downtown Bradenton and the Riverwalk, are within easy walking distance.
