New Smyrna Beach Fun Events

Craving something fun to do? In New Smyrna Beach, it’s waiting for you! From art fairs, to antique festivals, pooch parades and more, New Smyrna Beach offers events galore…

…like the New Smyrna Beach Chowder Festival in January, where over 30 chefs will compete to tantalize your taste buds. Or what better way to enjoy the work of talented artists than in “One of the Top 100 Small Art Towns in America” with the Festival of the Arts – also in January – at picturesque Riverside Park in New Smyrna Beach?

If you like parties, then Flagler Avenue in New Smyrna Beach is the place for you, particularly on Fat Tuesday. Put on those beads and a big fat smile because this event promises a celebration of epic proportions!

If you want something to wet your whistle that will make you whistle, New Smyrna Beach has got that covered. On the first Saturday of every month, you can sample craft beers and unique wines during New Smyrna’s Sip and Stroll. Or get a feel for our extraordinary art community on our Gallery Walk down historic Canal Street. And don’t forget to get your shopping on during Christmas in July.

We kick off summer in New Smyrna Beach with our Flagler Avenue Seaside Fiesta, which is jam-packed with artisan booths, live entertainment and festive foods. Then, in July, there is the Flagler Avenue Ice Cream Social, and fireworks for the fourth of course!

Fall in New Smyrna Beach is fun too, with the New Smyrna Jazz Fest spanning four entire days in September and New Smyrna-ween with a parade and so much local fun it’s scary!

Plus, in a seafaring town like New Smyrna Beach, who could be without a Christmas Boat Parade? However, never fear, there is also a traditional parade for all the landlubbers every year!
