Editor's Picks Events: It's All About the Beaches on the Islands in March 2018

Mar 08, 2018 08:10AM ● By Kevin
Sanibel and Captiva Islands have plenty of exciting things going on, but it can be tough finding out about them. There's a lot going on in your neighborhood this month, especially at the beaches and outdoors, in general.

This weekend, the 17th annual "A Peek at the Unique" event takes place at The Sanibel Community Church. A sought-after day out for islanders, seasonal residents and visitors, the “Peek” has invariably sold out every year. You can also check out the annual Octifest on the Beach event, presented by Sanibel Sea School. You'll enjoy sunset views, dinner, drinks, stargazing, a live and silent auction, and a few fun surprises.

Later in the month, get your drink on at a few fun events, like The Community House Sanibel Community Association's South Comfort on Sanibel dinner and dancing event, or Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation's Beer in the Bushes concert event.

We've compiled some things that are happening throughout March 2018, that could be fun to do. Check out our list below, and if you'd like your event featured in a future Editor's Picks Events article, add it to our calendar!
