Hotel and Restaurant Sponsor Application

Dear Business Owner,

You have probably read about the Englewood Beach Waterfest event which is scheduled for this fall. This is our ninth annual event and is being planned by an all-volunteer team and will take place November 17-19, 2023 at Englewood Beach.

Not only does this event bring the focus to Englewood and all that we have to offer in terms of water sports and the environment, but it is also bringing together the resources of both Charlotte County and Sarasota County cities and towns of Englewood, Venice, North Port, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda and many others.

The Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach VCB conducted an Economic Impact Estimate for the 2021 Englewood Beach Waterfest and estimated the total economic impact of $5,679,900 of indirect and direct spending by people attending the Englewood Beach Waterfest who live outside of Charlotte County. That included over $1,897,500 spent in accommodations and local restaurants.

According to the study there were 5,427 paid room nights of attendees who live outside of Charlotte County.
