New Smyrna Beach Community Events
New Smyrna Beach is not just a slice of heaven on earth, it is a charming small town full of big town fun! Whether you’re looking for family fun or fun for the over-21-crowd, there’s always something incredible to do in New Smyrna Beach!
Aside from amazing seaside dining and shopping venues and everything under the sun when it comes to fun on the water, New Smyrna Beach is host to amazing events throughout the year. The holidays are magical with a boat parade and a spectacular fireworks display over the ocean…and there are Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras and St. Patty’s Day festivities; New Smyrna-ween, where all the kids (and not so kids) dress up and parade through town in hopes of winning a prize; and Thanksgiving is time for the Turkey Run, just up the road in Daytona.
Don’t miss New Smyrna’s February Art Fiesta with its “Chalk It Up” sidewalk art event, the March Music Festival and Vintage Fair and the New Smyrna Beach Wine and Food Festival in April. New Smyrna Beach Flagler Avenue Seaside Festival marks the start of summer; and if you’re looking for more exciting affairs, there’s New Smyrna Beach Sand Art Festival, New Smyrna Beach Kite Flying Festival and New Smyrna Beach Jazz Festival, in all its melodious glory, which wraps up the summer fun in September!
Whether your thing is drinking in art or the art of drinking, Canal Street has something for you. Quench your thirst with an Art Stroll or during a Sip and Stroll Craft Beer Tasting event. Both are the first Saturday of every month. Then cruise on over to the Classic Cruise Car Show the second Saturday of each month. If Sunday is better for you, you are more than welcome to enjoy the family-friendly Sunday Concert Series under the Riverside gazebo.
