What the Free?! – August 2022 

It is officially my birthday month! Though it has been a hot summer in Florida, I still enjoy time outdoors and finding events around the city to stop by, especially when they’re free. I have included some more free events below and would love to know which ones you are able to check out.

Stop by the free concert series each Friday from 7 to 9pm at the Bo Diddley Plaza. Each week a new entertainer performs. Enjoy genres such as classic rock, R&B, reggae, soul, funk, ska, blues, and more!


On September 30, enjoy a free self-guided tour of exciting visual art, live music, performances, and events from 7-10pm at the Artisan’s Guild Gallery.


Live closer to Williston? Free music! Join them for the first Friday of every month through September for an evening of free musical entertainment.


What better way to welcome the fall than Trenton’s Almost Fall Festival on September 10 from 10am to 4pm? There will be local business and food trucks for some yummy options.
