Looking for a less congested place to enjoy Oktoberfest and take in some sunshine at the same time? You’ll find just what you’re looking for at the north end of the small island of Boca Grande, off the Southwest Coast of Florida.
The Boca Grande Resort and Boca Grande Chamber of Commerce are hosting an Oktoberfest Opening Gala Friday, October 24, featuring beer and wine tasking, German cuisine, live music, and it’s all going to benefit local charities.
Antique Art & Vintage Mart
October is an ideal time to visit Southwest Florida. The balmy weather isn’t too hot or cold making it the perfect time of year to browse the vintage pieces presented at the Fall Fest 2014 Antique Art and Vintage Mart which will run from October 24 -26.
This event will feature multiple antique dealers from across the country as well as local artists ready to display their quality handcrafted treasures. An appraisal service will be available.
The Fall Fest is an event designed to please the whole family. Along with the Antique Art and Vintage Mart, there will be games for the kids, live music, a pumpkin patch, a carving contest, and pie walk. It’s fun the whole family will enjoy and offers a sense of community.
The Boca Grande Resort
The Boca Grande Resort is a small, intimate vacation property which can be reached via a causeway or by boat. They offer free Wi-fi, an outdoor pool, and have two onsite restaurants. The Sand Bar features Amish dishes where guests can’t stop talking about the apple pie! Upstairs, Patricks offers Thai cuisine and sushi.
If you can’t make it for the Fall Fest, the Finest Kind vintage store is located on site at the Boca Grande Resort with plenty of antiques and collectibles to enjoy during your stay. For more information, call 941-964-0484.
