ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
While much of Englewood’s
leisure opportunities focus on
the great outdoors (and the
outdoors is pretty great here), the area also
has plenty to offer when it comes to arts and
It’s key to stay on top of all the art shows,
food festivals, concert weekends and special
events that take place throughout the year,
and especially during the “winter” months.
Not only will you have a great time, but often
you’ll be supporting a local organization.
Lemon Bay High School boasts an awardwinning
theater and band program, and
both offer performances throughout the
school year that are open to the public. The
local Rotary Clubs sponsor many popular
annual events including the Spring Arts
Festival the July 4th Fireworks, golf and
poker tournaments. Of course, every Labor
Day Weekend, Englewood pulls out all the
stops for our Pioneer Days Celebration.
There are so many opportunities to support
local agencies and have a great time, from
food festivals, to concerts, that we can’t list
them here. Let’s just say if it’s Saturday night,
something is going on.
For more than 25 years, The Lemon Bay
Playhouse has been producing plays, special
concerts and entertainment events at its
theater at 96 W. Dearborn St. The theater
