We think Melbourne, FL is a fun and lively place at any time, but when there’s a festival going on, the energy gets amped up a few notches. Besides, if you’re going to visit a new-to-you place, why not visit when there’s something extra special going on?
Festivals big and small bring locals and visitors together, and they give us a chance to celebrate all the wonderful things that make our Historic Downtown Melbourne & Eau Gallie Arts District unique. There are festivals dedicated to local food, art, and music. To highlight a few: Melbourne Arts Festival Wickham Park in mid April; Downtown Melbourne’s Friday Fest, every 2nd Friday; Eau Gallie Arts District Main Street First Friday Fest. Guaranteed fun for all!
But more than anything, these festivals are a chance for people to get together and simply have a good time. You’re welcome to spectate and take photos of the fun, or join in and be a part of the festivities.
