Englewood Beach Waterfest Returns!

The Englewood Beach Waterfest returns this November 2016.  Once again, Waterfest is bringing some big names and even bigger fun to the small beach town located on the west coast of Florida, just south of Sarasota. With multiple weekends filled with events for the entire family, you will surely enjoy taking part in at least one of them!

Ecofest will be held on October 29, 2016 at Lemon Bay Park.  Once again, children and adults will explore the natural beauty and environment of our area.  

Paddlefest will be held on November 12 & 13 at Weston’s wannaB inn, at the tip of Manasota Key.

Waterfest wraps up the excitement with Racefest, where internationally known powerboats from around the world will race offshore to see who will be named the World Champion of OPA/APBA Offshore Powerboat Racing on November 19, 2016.  You won’t want to miss the opportunity to see the powerboats up close and personal at the drypits on Englewood Beach, beginning November 19th. We invite you to get involved and support this Englewood Community driven event series!
