Naples Seafood & Music Festival

Kicking off the month of February is the Naples Seafood and Music Festival, beginning Friday, February 3rd, and running through Sunday, February 5th, at the Naples Italian American Club in Naples. Get ready to feast, dance, and be entertained at this annual event, featuring delicious seafood and veggie dishes made with the freshest of ingredients by local restaurants and food vendors and a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to quench your thirst.

As you indulge in your meal, let the sounds of live music wash over you from some of the hottest local and regional musicians, spanning a diverse lineup of rock, R&B, blues, jazz, soul, and more! Take a break from the music and wander through the arts and crafts marketplace, showcasing a wide range of products and fine works of art. Admission is free, and more information can be found in our blog post!

St. Petersburg Motor Classic

Heading further north to St. Petersburg, Florida, on Sunday, February 5th, enjoy an outstanding lineup of vintage and classic automobiles at the annual St. Petersburg Motor Classic at South Straub Park. Hosted by the Car Club of St. Petersburg Yacht Club, this free event is an auto enthusiast’s dream!

Bonita Springs National Art Festival

The following weekend, head to Riverside Park in Downtown Bonita Springs on Saturday, February 11th, and Sunday, February 12th, for the Bonita Springs National Art Festival. The festival features over 200 national and international artists' work while supporting the many Bonita Springs Centers for the Arts programs. Recognized as one of the top fine arts festivals in the US, 16 categories of art will be shown, and attendees will have the opportunity to meet, talk and buy from the artists. Admission is free, but festival proceeds will support local community art activities. This event is an excellent way to explore the rapidly-growing Downtown Bonita Springs area and support local boutique businesses.
