Events and Happenings in Naples in June 2016

Naples_Pier2-510x170Summer has arrived in Naples and all we have left here are the Naples natives and transplanted northerners spending the summer in the hot and humid weather.  Not as many activities to report as there have been the last few months but there is still fun to be had in Naples in the summer months.  As I mentioned last month, enjoy the summer on the beach while the gulf is warm and there is plenty of parking available.  The summer allows us to enjoy Naples without the crowds so take advantage of it!  Also, we don’t have to work as hard as we do during the winter months and we have more time to take advantage of the fabulous activities there are to enjoy in our area.

sugdenImprov at Sugden Theater – May 20 to June 18 – every weekend.  I have been to see this improv before and it is guaranteed to be a good laugh and a fun evening.  Where can you get live entertainment for $20 per person?  The Naples Players work very hard all year with all their productions but this one is off the cuff and each show is different.  As Forest Gump says you never know what you’ll get!  Don’t miss this fun and excitement of this improv entertainment.


mercatoMovies on the lawn at Mercato – June 21st 8:30pm – Star Wars: The Force Awakens – bring your lawn chairs and beverages and enjoy a free movie on the lawn at Mercato.  What better way to see Star Wars than under the stars of a Naples sky?  And the price is right too!  As you know I enjoy happy hour and there are many happy hours to enjoy at Mercato before the movie starts.  So pick your happy hour and pick up your lawn chair and head over to the Mercato on June 21st!

Jazz concert seriesNaples Beach Hotel Summerjazz on the Gulf – June 25 to September 24 – this is the 31st year for the free concert series under the stars on the beach at the Naples Beach Hotel.  One Saturday night per month from June to September the Watkins Lawn will be host to a free jazz concert.  June 25th starts the summer series with Pocket Change.  The concert runs from 6:30 to 9:30 and yes you heard right admission is free!  What a fabulous location to sit and enjoy the sunset and the gulf breezes and listen to some jazz at the same time.  This is a great event for those of us that spend the summer in Naples.  Who can resist those fabulous sunsets?

Remember it is always toasty in Naples and you deserve your piece of Naples sunshine and the fun events happening in our area.
