April – the first full month of spring – ahhhhhh. Full of promise, the air has taken on a decidedly gentle feel, the nights are warmer, and best of all summer is just around the corner.
April is the month that makes you want to spend your time outside again. Day trips and weekends away are planned, the barbecue is dusted off, flowers are planted, and you just might want to jump in the pool again.
So what’s up on Anna Maria Island in April you ask? The Beach’n Food Truck and Music Festival!

Food: Seafood, hot dogs, burgers, pizza, chicken, Bar-B-Q and more, in addition to a variety of desserts, beer, wine, margaritas, rum coolers (OMG!) and beverages
How to Get There: There is plenty of free parking, but because this is a very popular event consider taking the Free Trolley, biking, or walking if you’re close enough.
Parking is available on Coquina Beach. You can also park in other locations further away along Bradenton Beach, Manatee Public Beach, etc. and ride the free trolley to the event. The Island Monkey Bus is another option to leave the driving to someone else and not have to worry about parking. Traffic to the island gets heavy during season after 10am, so plan to come early to enjoy all the festivities.
Cool Factor: Sponsored by the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce & a portion of the proceeds go to support the AMI Chamber’s scholarship fund for Manatee County seniors.
