What's On Suncoast

What’s On Suncoast? 2.11 – 2.18

The Suncoast Post asks, “What’s On, Suncoast?” Here are some ideas for things around the area this week of February 11 – 18, 2022!

2022 Bradenton Area River Regatta

Regatta On Suncoast

2022 Bradenton Area River Regatta
5851 Nathan Benderson Circle, Sarasota, FL 34235

The seventh annual Bradenton Area River Regatta oozes over–the–top exhilaration coupled with all the traditional festival favorites—music, food, fun things to do—in one awe-gasping extravaganza that will fascinate spectators of all ages long after the day is done. Fueled by the fastest inland boats on the water and the largest tunnel boat race on tour. To make sure you get all the speed you need, we’ve added a second powerboat class, SST-45, often called “Formula Lights”—small, fast, and darting with razor-sharp precision on the surf.


With music that will make your feet move and body groove all day long on two main stage venues. Watch as world fly-boarding Champion Kristen Smoyer skies 80 feet into the air on an elevator of water in one somersaulting sequence of acrobatic moves. Then marvel at all the fun four-legs can conjure up in the Frisbee® flying, canine trick antics of Team Zoom and Daredevil Dogs. Plus cool kids zones on both shores of the river and enough food and drinks to satisfy appetites large and small. And, the after-dark delights are spectacular, too, as the nation’s “First Family of Fireworks,” Zambelli Internationale, paints the sky with pyrotechnic wizardry to end the day in one rousing blast of kaleidoscopic beauty. Come join us for the all-day event starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 12, 2022.

Toyz On Suncoast

Big Boy Toyz Expo

Big Boy Toyz Expo
Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center, 75 Taylor St, Punta Gorda, FL 33950

The Big Boy Toyz Expo was formed with you, (the ultimate outdoor enthusiast in mind). Where else can you come to see all your dreams and passions in one location? After years of research and attending many different shows, we decided that a show dedicated to one particular genre wasn’t enough. The feedback was that people wanted to see more. They wanted to be able to see different categories such as boats, RV’s, ATV’s, exotic cars, and other outdoor related items all in one show. Come by February 11 – 13th, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily in Punta Gorda to shop for your new outdoor toys.
