Grab your flip flops and head to Venice Beach on Saturday, September 28 for Venice MainStreet Inc.’s 4th Annual Venice Beach Party. Sponsored by Fifth Third Bank and open to the public for free, this entertaining outdoor event features live music, food vendors and cocktail bars on the beach starting at 3 p.m. and lasting until sunset.
“We are excited to be in our 4th year of this great event, and we have expanded this year!” said the Events Coordinator for Venice MainStreet Inc., Nick Sperry. “We look forward to being back on the beach!”
Gulf Shores Realty will be giving away 1,500 custom designed t-shirts for FREE promptly at 3 p.m. The collectible shirts feature original artwork from Gemini Apparel created specifically for this year’s event. Gulf Shores Broker Wayne Welsh said, “We simply wanted to say thank you to the community for making us the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce 2019 Business of the Year.” This is the 2nd year Gulf Shores Realty has done the T-Shirt Give-a-Way. They cannot be purchased or reserved and no shirts will be given out early.
Nothing tastes better than food on the beach and there is plenty to choose from including local bites from BrewBurgers, The Maine Menu, Sharky’s On the Pier, Bonefish Grill, and Kona Ice. Enjoy a variety of mixed drinks featuring Siesta Key Silver Rum or pop the top on a Landshark Lager.
The music lineup on the Truly Nolen Stage will keep you grooving until the sun goes down!

Admission is free and a free shuttle will travel from the Centennial Park parking lot downtown to the Venice Beach Pavilion, located at 101 The Esplanade, and back.
