If you prefer your concerts under the sun and theater under the stars, The Palm Beaches may just be your perfect venue for music and performing arts. Our star-studded event lineup includes everything from Grammy-winning bands to Broadway shows to Shakespeare. Here are a few of our greatest hits.
Each spring, SunFest returns to the West Palm Beach waterfront, bringing with it dozens of headlining musicians and thousands of fans. On three stages set against the sparkling backdrop of Lake Worth Lagoon, see acts ranging from Ice Cube to Billy Idol, peruse art and stay fueled up with the help of local food vendors.
Culture takes center stage at Festival of the Arts BOCA, held each March at Mizner Park in downtown Boca Raton. Attend readings by Pulitzer Prize-winning authors, see performances by actors like Bill Murray and hear your favorite movie scores performed by a live orchestra—perhaps with a special appearance by classical legends like Itzhak Perlman or Yo-Yo Ma.
Fans of the Bard, get thee to Carlin Park in Jupiter for Shakespeare by the Sea, a summer tradition for nearly 30 years. Bring a blanket, a beach chair and a picnic—or come hungry for mouthwatering food trucks—and sit back for performances of classic plays like Antony & Cleopatra and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
There are plenty of other music and stage events on our calendar, too. See what Broadway shows or big-name concerts are on the schedule at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, enjoy a month of art, culture and ideas in May during MOSAIC and browse the schedule for free outdoor concerts throughout the summer.
