Siesta Fiesta is a 2 day event with lots of things to do and see – art, crafts, food, drinks and music. Saturday and Sunday, the main village street is shut down and filled with brightly colored paintings, sculpture, hand made clothing and jewelry. It’s a shoppers dream. Or you can just sit back with a cold drink and your choice of fiesta food and watch the people go by. This festival draws mainlanders and vacationers to the key in big numbers, so you’ll see island residents walking or riding their bikes to avoid the traffic. Held each year in April or May, check the date and come on out and enjoy Siesta Fiesta!
Spring Break is still happening on Siesta Key Beach! Come on out to the key. Although crowds this time of year can swell to 15-20,000 on the main beach – this beautiful location offers several miles of perfect sand – so you can always find a quiet secluded place if that’s what you’re looking for. Relax in the sun and work on your tan. Right now the beautiful gulf water is the perfect temperature for swimming. And, no matter the temperature, our sand never gets hot on your feet!
The Siesta Key village has live bands and DJs playing music at night, shopping, bikini contests, good food and drinks all within easy walking distance of the beach. Siesta Key is a friendly and welcoming place to spend your spring break vacation.
