Siesta Key July 4th Events and Activities

If you’re planning to spend 4th of July 2020 on Siesta Key, you’re in for a treat! There are always tons of fun activities and events going on during Independence Day, so you can bring the whole family out to ring in America’s birthday and make some unforgettable memories. Best of all, all of these activities are just minutes away from our Siesta Key lodging!

What To Do


Start your day off right with a little bit of fun exercise with Yoga on Siesta Beach! While this event is not specific to Fourth of July, it’s the perfect way to get moving and put yourself in the right mindset for great day ahead. Come out to Siesta Key Beach from 9 to 10:30 a.m. to experience an incredible yoga class on the shore. All ages and fitness levels are welcome, and all you’ll need is a towel or mat and your drinking water. The class is free but does accept cash donations.

Another favorite summer activity in the area is the Downtown Sarasota Farmers’ Market. The market takes place every Saturday from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. and brings together some of the friendliest vendors in the area. Come out to grab some fresh produce for your lunch, pick out a unique souvenir to bring home, or select a gorgeous piece of jewelry to add to your wardrobe. This is the perfect way to get to know the locals and to pick up a special treat!


When it comes down to celebrating Independence Day, you can’t miss out on the Siesta Key Fourth of July Fireworks! The fireworks begin at dusk, usually around 9:15 p.m., and are launched north of the volleyball courts at Siesta Key Public Beach. Viewing is the best from anywhere on Crescent Beach, south of the Public Beach, or along the Gulf or Intracoastal Waterway. If you’re looking to elevate your experience, purchase the VIP package from the Chamber of Commerce which will give you premier parking, picnic-style food, and beverages including soft drinks, wine, and beer.

You can also experience an incredible firework show in nearby Sarasota. Situate yourself near Island Park, Bird Key Park, or the John Ringling Bridge for the best view of the show. Alternatively, you can also check out the fireworks in Venice Beach. If you are here, head to Nokomis Public Beach or the Nokomis Jetty for the best view.

Where to Eat

For a special Fourth of July dinner, head to Marie Selby Botanical Gardens for the All-American BBQ and Independence Day Celebration. You’ll be able to taste incredible food from Michael’s on East, experience a family-friendly dance party and activities, and watch the fireworks over Sarasota Bay to finish out the evening.

There are tons of other family-friendly destinations to eat for your Fourth of July celebration. Start the day at the Village Cafe or the Sun Garden Cafe, then pick up lunch at the Hub Baja Grill or Clayton’s Siesta Grille. Daiquiri Deck Siesta Key Village and the Lobster Pot Restaurant are perfect for getting your seafood craving taken care of. For dessert, cool off at Big Olaf Creamery or Made in Rome Organic Gelato, or pick out a mouthwatering pastry at Orange Octopus or Paisano’s Italian Bakery.
