While summer is quickly fading away in other regions of the country, it is still persevering in stunning Naples, FL. In fact, Naples is still at its prime for hot summer days and evenings, and Naples residents cannot get enough of everything that the calm pre-season has to offer. September is the perfect time to take advantage of some of the traditions that Naples has to offer year-round residents and visitors. These September events are not to be missed:
Summer Jazz on the Gulf
September 14th - 6:30-9:30 P.M.
Bring a beach chair to relax on the lawn of the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, or leave it at home so you can dance the night away. Either way, you will be mesmerised by a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico as you delight in the evening’s free entertainment. As the final jazz concert of the 34th consecutive annual event, this is a must. Featuring Ari and the Alibis, a renowned Tampa Bay area band, the concert is sure to be a hit with an infusion of Funk, Jazz and Samba, Blues, Soul, and Rock music.
Thursdays on Third
September 26th - 6:00-9:00 P.M.
If you’re looking for a way to ease into the weekend, this year-round tradition is always a success, and may just become your favorite event. The courtyards and plazas along Third Street South, in historic Old Naples, provide the perfect backdrop for live music and entertainment. It’s the perfect evening for people watching, cocktail sipping, dancing, or just listening to the classic pop, jazz, rock, or steel band music that echoes through the streets. Stores are open for browsing and restaurants are open for dining during this family and often pet-friendly event.
Blessing of the Stone Crab Fleet
September 28th - 10:00 A.M.-2:00 P.M.
Bring the entire family to Everglades City to witness the blessing of stone crab boats and to join in the fun of live music, raffles, face-painting, frog-jumping contests, stone crab art, bake sales, and the famous coconut guava cake contest. Hosted at the historic Rod and Gun Club, a quaint bed and breakfast which overlooks the Barron River and is full of Old Florida charm, this event is the perfect option for someone who is looking for an adventure and would like to see an authentic piece of Old Florida.
Wine Around the Water
September 28th - 5:00-7:00 P.M.
Sample wine from over 20 boutiques and restaurants at the Village Shops on Venetian Bay. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the $20 ticket price will benefit SNIP Collier, a spay and neuter initiative program. Gulf Coast Humane Society of Fort Myers will be present to introduce you to adoptable dogs, and you'll also receive an exclusive discount card to six of the luxury waterfront restaurants.
