Celebrate the 4thof July with family and friends at Snook Haven at the 5th Annual Myakka River Kayak Festival - 4th of July Jam Blast! This fun family event will take place from 8AM to 4PM on Wednesday, July 4th. It’s the perfect way to celebrate the 4th of July during the day, plus you can still make it to the beach afterwards for fireworks!

Live musical entertainment will take place from 11:00am – 4:00pm. Artists include Treble Hook and Steve Arvey, plus a few more surprises along the way! Performers will bring a unique and powerful Americana/Bluegrass sound to the Snook Haven stage. It will be a day full of great music and great food in a fantastic “Old Florida” setting! 

Kayak and canoe rentals will be available starting at 8:00am, or you can bring your own. No cover charge for entrance. 

The festival will benefit Friends of Sarasota County Parks, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of parks in Sarasota County.
