Best Holiday Events in Bradenton

Things to do In and Around IMG Academy, Bradenton & Anna Maria Island

Get ready for the holidays by doing your Christmas shopping locally at the many markets in Bradenton and the surrounding areas of Florida. You will have no problem finding unique and handmade options that make thoughtful Christmas gifts.

There is the Tampa Bay Holiday Market, Wimauma Fall Festival, 22 Moons Shop Small Holiday Fair, and the Crafty Ladies Annual Winter Show, all happening throughout November and December.

If you have a family to entertain, on the first Saturday in September take them to the Neighbourhood Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration in nearby St Petersburg. There are plenty of activities, and a chance to tell Santa what they want for Christmas.

To get yourself in the mood for Christmas, head to the SFA LX 2021 Christmas Party on 11 December. For the price of your ticket, you get a full three-course meal, access to the open bar, entry in the prize draw, and much more.

If you prefer something a bit less formal, then join the Annual Ugly Sweater Crawl around the best bars in the Sarasota area.
