Ambassador Opportunities

Become an Ambassador today!

Englewood Beach Waterfest has become the Premier Annual Southwest Florida Gulf Coast Marine Event bringing over $6 million in out-of-county revenue to the local community.

Waterfest showcases and encourages the responsible recreational use of our water resources and fosters the protection of our water and marine life. Waterfest’s “Family Conservation Area” continues to be a most popular and educational experience for children and adults alike!

The Waterfest Board of Directors strive to expand and improve the festival every year for our loyal and enthusiastic patrons with the optimum in offshore boat race vantage points and by providing the finest attractions, amenities, goods, and services.
