Our Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs also do
their part to keep things lively with a variety
of activities and fund-raisers, from weekend
long festivals in Placida to golf tournaments,
evening events and the 4th of July Fire works.
There are the signature events that attract
people from all over to Englewood including
the Englewood Family YMCA’s Tropical
Nights, the Artful Lobster at the Hermitage
Artist Retreat and the Englewood Relay for
Life to benefit the American Cancer Society.
2015 saw the first Englewood Beach Waterfest
and championship power boat races with a
parade, parties, music, food and more leading
up to the races held at Englewood Beach
in mid November. Then, of course there’s
Englewood’s biggest celebration of the year,
Pioneer Days, with concerts, contests, music
and more throughout Labor Day weekend.
Make sure you find a place early to watch the
parade, as thousands line the Labor Day route
for this very popular tradition.
With plays, exhibits, car shows, pancake
breakfasts, concerts, golf tournaments, dances,
dinners and more, you can be sure your social
calendar will be full all year.
Boat owners who don’t launch from a private
dock will need to find a public boat ramp and
there are many in Charlotte and Sarasota
