2017 Events in New Smyrna Beach
If I had to pick my favorite place, it would be New Smyrna Beach. Full of small town charm and beachside appeal, it also hosts the most remarkable events, and 2017 promises more of the same!
The 41st Annual Festival of the Arts with fabulous art displays by over 230 talented artists, live music, a student art exhibit, a creative education tent, food court and more was held in January…along with the Chowder Festival where over 30 chowder chefs filled Flagler Avenue to compete in a culinary cook-off of extraordinary proportions!
Now that it is February, we have Fat Tuesday to look forward to. There will be a Mardi Gras parade and party without compare. Flagler Avenue will be bursting with great Mardi Gras-themed food and music, and prizes will be awarded for best float, parade marchers and vehicles. February is also time for the NSB Art Fiesta, with more than 250 artisans and crafters, food vendors and live entertainers, as well as a stilt walker, face painter and balloon artist. This fun-filled fiesta is scheduled for February 18-19 at Old Fort Park on Julia Street.
Get your groove on for the New Smyrna Beach Blues Festival in May – a four-day event where soulful sounds flow through the streets. Revelers can take in scores of bands in multiple locations throughout town. And in June, the Seaside Fiesta takes will take place beachside on Flagler Avenue. It will feature live entertainment, arts and crafts booths, great food, games and more!
Taste great seafood from Volusia’s best restaurants, and enjoy live entertainment at New Smyrna Beach’s Annual Shrimp and Seafood Festival in August. There will also be a “Best on the Beach” contest in which prizes are awarded in shrimp, shellfish, fish and specialty seafood categories. Also enjoy monthly events throughout the year, including the Wine Walk – a progressive wine tasting event in which participants can explore over 100 wines within local pubs, restaurants and galleries; and classic car shows that absolutely any motor enthusiast would enjoy!
