Calling all Artists!

Theme: 2022 SWFL Craft Beer Week

Thursday, September 1, 2022 – Monday, September 5, 2022


SWFL Craft Beer Week presented by the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce, is an annual event hosted over Labor Day weekend, celebrating local craft breweries in Southwest Florida. Traditionally, there is a kickoff event at HeadPinz, where attendees can pick up their VIP tickets and will receive a sample beer tasting, a chance to win some great prizes, and more! The week continues with our local breweries showcasing their tap rooms, special beer releases, behind the scenes tours and an education piece – with a few surprises along the way.


The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce is calling all artists for the official poster contest! The idea stems from the New Orleans Jazz Fest poster, but the opportunities are endless. We would like to capture that same feeling of excitement and camaraderie, but with a Floridian twist!


What does this look like to you? Let your creativity flow…

Maybe it’s a collection of Florida- an alligator, manatee, and blue heron all sipping an ice-cold beer.

Maybe it’s a group of friends, beer glasses half-full and raised in the air as they all dance to the rhythm of the beat on a mild summer night.


Give us a taste of your imagination for our 2022 Southwest Florida Craft Beer Week!
