New Smyrna Beach 2017 Events

New Smyrna Beach is quiet small town with historic charm, heaps of beachside fun, and a host of interesting events. The events are varied, enjoyable, and take place throughout the entire year!

New Smyrna Beach hosts the 41st Annual Festival of the Arts every January at Riverview Park and Canal Street. Don’t miss this fabulous event with art displays by over 230 talented artists, live music, a student art exhibit, a creative education tent, food court and more!

Then, at the very end of January, the area’s best chowder chefs fill both sides of Flagler Avenue to compete in a culinary cook-off during NSB’s Chowder Festival.

And did someone say let’s party? On Fat Tuesday, New Smyrna Beach, throws an extraordinary Mardi Gras party of tremendous proportions! Bust out your best beads because Flagler Avenue will be bursting with great Mardi Gras-themed food and music, a traditional Mardi Gras parade, and prizes will be awarded for best float, parade marchers and vehicles.

The NSB Art Fiesta is also a “don’t miss,” with more than 250 artisans and crafters, food vendors and live entertainment, February 18-19 at Old Fort Park on Julia Street.

Then, soulful sounds fill the air for four melodious days during the New Smyrna Beach Blues Festival in May. Talented musicians play in a variety of terrific venues throughout the town.

Attention seafood lovers! If you like seafood, you won’t want to miss the Seaside Fiesta in June or New Smyrna Beach’s Annual Shrimp and Seafood Festival in August. Taste great seafood from Volusia’s best restaurants, and enjoy live entertainment at both events!

The holidays are also filled with cheer. Check out the Turkey Run around Thanksgiving. It is America’s largest classic car show! Then there are Christmas parades by land and sea, and a spectacular fireworks display for New Year’s Eve.

New Smyrna Beach also holds monthly events, including incredible art shows; the well-known “Wine Walk” – a progressive wine tasting event in which participants can choose from over 100 wines within local pubs, restaurants and galleries; and classic car shows beyond compare!
