Gulfview Manor: Taste of the Beach Festival

EventPhotoFull_TasteoftheBeach-01We’re just about hitting peak season down here on Fort Myers Beach, but give it a few more weeks and the spring breakers and snowbirds will leave (and so will the traffic!) Visiting Fort Myers Beach in the offseason can be extremely pleasurable experience. Fewer visitors means spending less time waiting for restaurants, less time stuck in your car on Estero Blvd. and more time to enjoy our beautiful community. We not only offer great rates during this time, but host amazing island events as well!

The 20th annual Taste of the Beach 2015, will take place on May 3, 2015. The best chefs of Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach and other areas of Southwest Florida flock to Estero Island for the first Sunday of the month, in hopes of winning a slew of awards. Judges will be sampling the tasty delights created by our areas fine chefs, and will be awarding honors for Best Appetizer, Best Beef or Veal Dish, Best Seafood Dish, Best Chicken Dish, Best Dessert, Best Luncheon Specialty Dish, Best Decorated Booth, and People’s Choice.

The best part of Taste of the Beach is sampling the delicious food and drinks- so come hungry! Gates open at 11:00 a.m., and food will be served until 5 p.m. (or until our chefs run out of food.) Tickets will be available on site. Admission is $5 for adults and children over 12. Children under 12 are free. Food tickets will be $1.00 each, with a $5 average food serving price.
