We’ve got fall festivals that offer something for everyone!
In August, don’t miss Spirit Fest at the Charlotte Harbor Event & Conference Center. This two-day metaphysical and holistic fair features workshops, merchandise of all kinds, authors, artists, readings, and much more.
Festivals in September run the gamut from kid-centric to culinary to artistic.
If you have little ones, have we got a festival for you! Kidz Fest 2022 will take over the Charlotte County Fairgrounds September 2–4, and it may be easier to tell you what they won’t have. In addition to the largest waterslide around, they’ll have bounce houses, pony rides, a petting zoo, food trucks featuring festival foods, and so much more. It’s possible that most important feature be the relaxation stations where the adults can enjoy a cocktail while the kids tire themselves out.
Let’s Eat! Englewood Restaurant Week is like a leisurely food festival over the course of two weeks, with many locations and options. You’ll find a nice variety of 2-course lunches and 3-course dinners to savor, along with tranquil views, relaxed and friendly atmospheres, and scrumptious drinks. It’s definitely time to indulge.
Next it’s art time, with the Punta Gorda Sullivan Street Craft Festival. This 2-day artistic extravaganza has grown so much, it’s now held up to four times a year. Artists come from across the country so it’s a great opportunity to experience a wide variety of artwork while enjoying the charm of historic and picture-perfect downtown Punta Gorda. There are many amazing independent restaurants within walking distance, as well as shops of all sorts, so you may have to stay an extra day to see and experience it all!
Come on down and find your favorite festival!
