Spring for the Arts logo
The 19th annual Spring for the Arts was held on Friday, April 26, 2024, at Epping Forest Yacht Club.

Guests enjoyed an evening of celebration to raise funds for arts education for children in Northeast Florida and honored Greg and Karen Montana as the Guardian of the Arts award recipients. 

Spring for the Arts is CAP’s signature fundraiser which celebrates community engagement in support of funding arts education initiatives throughout the region. Since its inception, the event has generated over $8 million for arts education in the greater Jacksonville area.
