Explore Some of Our Favorite Fall 2021 Events in Naples, Florida
After a year of canceled events, all of us in Naples are more than ready to enjoy some of our community favorites! And there is no shortage of exciting happenings coming up soon. From food and drink to the arts, sports, and Halloween, something is going on almost every day in the Naples region during September, October, and November. Let’s take a look!
Do you love trying new restaurants? Sizzle Dining is a 3-week-long semi-annual event featuring more than 60 participating restaurants in Lee and Collier Counties. You can enjoy a two-course lunch or three-course dinner featuring fresh creations from local chefs for a low prix fixe (usually $19-$39). Additionally, one dollar from every special is donated to a local charity. This year they are supporting Blessings in a Backpack SWFL, a 501c3 charity that feeds OVER 5,000 local food insecure elementary students every weekend during the school year.
The Paradise Coast Wine & Food Experience, presented by Publix, at 5th Avenue South presents rich and delicious moments for guests to taste, savor and explore the Naples culinary scene, from local trends to regional traditions. The highlight of the event is the Grand Tasting: a gourmet showcase of local chefs, budding talent and nationally renowned culinary leaders who mix with patrons in a friendly setting.
Take a look back at the 2019 Wine and Food Experience:
You don’t need to travel to Sundance to see innovative, thought-provoking films. Instead, stay close to home and attend the Naples International Film Festival. Participants range from short films to full-length and span all genres. Many past participants have gone on to win major awards, so sneak-peek them right here in Southwest Florida.
If you’re looking for an activity for the whole family, then Boo at the Zoo is ideal! The event takes place in the mornings from 9 am-1 pm and is jam-packed with fun, festive, educational activities for kids. Kids in costume get in free, and they can trick-or-treat, join a scavenger hike, meet costumed characters, and much more.
October 20-November 7
Get your fill of extreme sports at the Pro Watercross World Championships, held at Sugden Regional Park. Watch athletes compete in events like stand-up paddleboarding, jet skiing, and much more. You can even sign up to participate. It’s a great way to get inspired to do more with your own watercraft and enjoy our gorgeous year-round South Florida weather.
Naples is home to some of the nation’s best golf courses, so it’s no wonder that we host our own championships. The CME Group Tour Championship is the season-ending event of the LPGA tour. Played at the beautiful Tiburon Golf Course at the Naples Ritz-Carlton, this event features the best female golfers in the world.
Cities worldwide have instituted Pride events, and Naples’ version is meant to celebrate the beauty and diversity of love. Come out and enjoy all the entertaining events and show your pride and support for yourself, your friends, and your Naples neighbors.
Come and get your sweat on before you feast on Thanksgiving morning! Thanksgiving 5ks, or “turkey trots,” as they’re often called, have become a fun American tradition for the whole family. This one has a relatively easy course that’s appropriate for everyone from athletes to walkers.
