Sunfest in the Town of Palm Beach 2016

It’s that time of year again: flowers are in bloom and the birds are chirping as the sun is shining down its invigorating warmth in the Town of Palm Beach; just another day on the Island where it’s always paradise.

But there is another, much louder and possibly annoying sound Palm Beachers might hear traveling over the Intracoastal from April 27 to the 1st of May. I’m talking, of course, about SunFest: the annual music festival taking place in West Palm Beach, just across from Palm Beach Island, which means we have Sunfest in the Town of Palm Beach 2016.

Spring always finds a way to get everybody outside, probably due in part to the fact that we get a few more hours of that beautiful Florida sunshine, and take part in local festivities and entertainment. Palm Beach is no exception to this and, with summer just around the corner, now is the last bit of peace and quiet that locals get to enjoy before the tourists and partygoers hit the beaches.

Beginning on the 27th of April, SunFest will be 5 days of art, food, and music, featuring over 45 popular bands such as Train, Duran Duran, Meghan Trainer, and even Evanescence.

Though it will be viewable and definitely heard (at least the muddled fog of screaming fans mixed with 3 bands playing at once will be) from the island, Palm Beachers can get a front seat to the action with tickets (starting at $40) which can be purchased at the gate but are on sale now on SunFest’s website at a discounted price.

Along with the 3 stages, SunFest will also feature 3 Captain Morgan’s Floating Oasis, which are floating bars crafting specialty Captain Morgan drinks, docked on the Intracoastal which could easily be seen as well as heard from many residents homes and apartments.

If crowds and live music isn’t your thing, you can at least take advantage of the beautiful Florida weather and watch the fireworks display from this side of the Intracoastal on Sunday at 9pm, during the closing celebrations. This could be one of the few redeeming qualities of the festival Town residents can enjoy.

Now is the perfect time for locals to relax and enjoy the quiet island life while they still have the chance. The summer months always bring in the crowds hoping to make the best of their time in paradise, and with an event like SunFest to kick off the summer season, locals might not get a chance to enjoy the quiet Florida breezes until fall.
