Your Local Guide to Great American Beach Party Weekend
About the Event
Great American Beach Party Weekend is one of Fort Lauderdale’s best annual events. Mark your calendar for Memorial Day Weekend and get ready to have an incredible time on the beach! The free event will take place on Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 8:30 p.m.
What to Expect
Since 2010, Fort Lauderdale’s biggest beach bash has transformed the city’s main beach into a lively entertainment mecca! Attend and you’ll experience music, live performances, and family-friendly activities everyone in your crew will love. Just a few of the event highlights include a kids’ zone, sand castle contest, art show, and free movie screening on the beach!
Of course, traditional beach activities are also encouraged. We recommend bringing a fun game like Bocce ball or a frisbee and the essential beach supplies. Don’t forget your towel, beach chairs, sunscreen, and plenty of water (Fort Lauderdale sun is often described as “stronger” and less forgiving than in other areas of the U.S.). To make planning a little easier, you can even use Fort Lauderdale Stays’ Concierge Service! We can provide you with beach chairs, family photography, and more.
