We have gone to this one and the one in Venice. They are both great and not to be missed. You do need to get your spot early but it is very interesting to see. We like to go every time we get to Florida!

What started out small 40 years ago has grown into a great tradition for this wonderful beach town. Depending on the weather and time of year, hundreds to a thousand people come to the beach before sunset every Sunday to participate in this drum circle fest.

The Drum Circle on Siesta Key Beach is one of many in the area. Venice has one and so does St. Pete. I love to go there around 6:30 in season when it is dusky and the drummers are really on a roll by 7 pm. Families go the beach during the day and stick around for the drums in... More

I think it's a pretty inexpensive form of entertainment. We especially enjoyed Shaman Mic McManus performance. It's a stop for us every trip.

Whether you are six or sixty, there's something enjoyable for everyone. No stuffed shirts here, only care-free enjoyment of a perfect beach, perfect sunset, perfect rhythms. Kick off your shoes and dig your feet into cotton soft sand. People-watching is half the fun!
