The Beach Market is open Wednesday and Friday each week through July 2022. This market focuses on local vendors and gives them a place to showcase their arts, crafts, jewelry and collectibles for sale. There are also local produce and foods available. Shoppers can also find clothing and souvenirs to help remember their trip to the island. The market is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and the park is located at 2650 Gulf Drive South in Bradenton Beach. These are some favorite events on Anna Maria Island.

Easter Sunrise Service

The April 17th sunrise service is a local tradition. This is the 57th year for the event and attendance is expected to be between 1200 and 2000 people.
