This fun family festival is an all day celebration right along side the azure Gulf waters and white sandy beaches at the south end of Coquina Beach, just south of the trolley turn around and the Coquina Beach Cafe.
Local bands will be performing live music to keep you jamming all throughout the day and into the evening. There will be plenty of opportunities for shopping as well, showcasing vendor booths with unique, one-of-a-kind items from jewelry, local artists’ works, collectible items and much more. A Kids Zone with all kinds of fun games and more for the young ones to enjoy will be set up.
The festival will also feature an amazing car show, The Bill Mergens Memorial Car Show, with over 100 classic, antique, custom and muscle cars on display from 10am until 3pm.
And of course, the stars of the show….a variety of Food Trucks serving delectable eats and treats. There is sure to be something for everyone. Refreshing adult beverages will be available – from wine, margaritas, rum runners and cold beer to soft drinks, fresh squeezed lemonade and water to wet your whistle.
This is a family friendly, community event open to all to enjoy, and no entrance fee!
Parking is available on Coquina Beach. You can also park in other locations further away along Bradenton Beach, Manatee Public Beach, etc. and ride the free trolley to the event. The Island Monkey Bus is another option to leave the driving to someone else and not have to worry about parking. Traffic to the island gets heavy during season after 10am, so plan to come early to enjoy all the festivities.
