This April 29 - 30, 2017 marks the 39th Annual Siesta Fiesta. The outdoor, open air street party and art and craft fair is held in Siesta Village on Siesta Key, just off the Sarasota, Florida mainland from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. both days.

The Fiesta was traditionally held in April and known as the last party of the "season," until 2008 when the month of the event date was changed to February.

In 2009 the popular festival returned to its original late April dates, probably due to the mass amount of confusion generated by 2008's date change and the outpouring of voices calling for it to return to its original date.

Usually, in years past, Ocean Boulevard was blocked off to traffic so participants in the festival as well as the general public could use the Village streets freely.

More on the annual Siesta Fiesta!

It is one giant outdoor block party. And it seems to get bigger each year. But despite that, everyone has a good time at this open air street fair.

There are hundreds of arts and crafts vendors, merchants, food stands and live musicians jam-packed into Siesta Key Village, but the crowd flows well and in mid - late April the weather is usually agreeable, as well as the crowd.

You can find almost any kind of art work here whether it be a painting, glass, metalwork, jewelry, sculpture, photography....the vendors, artists and crafters really run the gamut of creativity at Siesta Fiesta.

Tip: Parking can be a challenge as several of Siesta Key Village’s streets are blocked off and the free public parking lot nearby fills up fast. Best bet is to walk or bike down to Siesta Key Village from another location.

Admission to "the Fiesta" in Siesta Key Village is free. The weather is quite agreeable this time of year and the Village is only a couple blocks east of the Gulf of Mexico, so there can be some nice sea breezes as well as sunshine, making it a perfect time to enjoy the Fiesta!
