Festivals and Events
Although you already have your heart set on a vacation in Fort Myers, you’re unsure of the best time of year to visit the sunny destination. There’s something worth seeing all year long in the seaside location, but this is especially true in October when the city holds the Annual Fort Myers Beach Pirate Festival. Don’t forget your stuffed parrot as you cheer on swashbuckling sailors, sway in the sea air to live music, and enjoy one of the most unique festivals in the nation.
If your travel time coincides with the spring season, consider visiting in March for the annual Fort Myers Beach Lions Club Shrimp Festival. The multi-day event includes races, games, cook-offs, parades, and more shrimp than one person should rationally eat. You’ll catch no shade from locals as you dig into a piping hot plate of seafood and cheer as the Shrimp Festival Queen is crowned–if you’re nice, she might even let you touch her crown, the winner is never very shellfish.
