About Howard Alan Events


Art festivals produced by Howard Alan Events are first class art exhibits much like those you’d expect at an art gallery or a museum but outdoors and family friendly.  The Florida based company has a long history for making art more accessible to the community in a casual and fun setting.

Howard Alan Events is the nation’s top producer of high-end art festivals and has perfected the art of doing business. Howard Alan and his wife Debbie started out in a small office in Plantation, Florida; eventually their son Darrin joined the business and through the years this family owned company has exhibited the work of thousands of artists from all over the country and abroad.  Howard Alan Events is one of the most widely recognized art festival promoters in the country, producing more than 45 festivals a year.  Howard, Debbie or Darrin personally oversee these shows and are usually found on site at one event or another.

Howard Alan Events has provided more than 10,000 different artists the opportunity to exhibit their work and make their businesses grow; many of them have given up professional careers, trading in their dress shoes for sandals. The art festivals help generate millions of dollars for a variety of organizations such as chambers, rotary clubs, downtown business associations and several other non-profit community organizations.  The artists, local merchants, restaurants and hotels all benefit from these events that drive additional guests and dollars to the art shows as well as the local economies.  Company founder Howard Alan advocates the importance of supporting the arts and artists because this in turn helps the local economy.  “Art is an investment that’s tangible; you can hang it on the wall and enjoy it as it appreciates in value,” explains Alan.

The group’s founders personally select culture rich cities for their show locations providing a complete outdoor experience unmatched by other festival.

The artists are juried by an independent panel of expert judges, and hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity. All of their artwork is original and handmade in America.

Debbie Flowers: Metal
