Events in Downtown Sanford, Florida

Events in Historic Downtown Sanford this Weekend August 24-26, 2018

| Events

As you might have noticed by now, Historic Downtown Sanford is the place to be! I will not even mention all the amazing live music that you get to enjoy week after week at almost every establishment in town, but look at the amount of fun events this town delivers, week after week! And this weekend is no exception!

Movie lovers, did you miss the Love Your Shorts Film Festival back in February? Then here’s your chance to watch this year’s best short films at the annual Summer Rewind, playing at the fabulous Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center this Friday! For those of you who want to have some outdoor fun before relaxing at the movies, popcorn in hand, how about playing a few rounds of shuffleboard at the Sanford Shuffle?

Saturday Sanford will be the location of the 3rd Annual Family Fitness Festival! Bring the family and work out at the Sanford Civic Center. For those of you who want to take it easier this Saturday (because you know, there’s a pretty big race happening on Sunday which has already been the talk of town for quite a while), just relax as you tour a few breweries during the Sanford Summer Pub Crawl or head on over to the Sanford Avenue Block Party and listen to awesome live music while meeting old and new friends on the street! Car lovers will be happy to hear that the Celery City Cruisers are back in town for their monthly get together!

And now, the day Sanford has been waiting for: it’s finally a race for the rest of us! A race where everyone is guaranteed to finish. Run, walk, crawl, dance or sashay (your choice!) across the finish line at the inaugural Sanford .327k Run! Yes, that’s right! Of course, this race is not just for fun (we have a feeling it will be the most fun you’ll ever have at a race!), it’s also supporting a great cause! Proceeds will benefit Relay for Life of North Seminole. After this most definitely exhausting fitness experience it’s your choice: cool off with a beer while listening to live music at Celery City Craft, or inside the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center enjoying some good old Jazz at the Sanford Jazz Ensemble Summer Concert.

Cheers to this weekend and cheers to Historic Downtown Sanford!
