There are usually 5 concerts  a year on Naples Island. The first summer concert is in May till August on the last Tuesday of the month from 6-8pm. The September concert is themed “Street Dance” and is on a Sunday, 5-7pm.

The community converges onto Colonnade Park with all the picnic necessities. Neighbors invite their friends and gather on this beautiful waterfront park to enjoy the live band. There are some bands that come back every year but there is usually a real nice selection picked out by the Naples Improvement Association.

These concerts are made possible by the Naples Improvement Association by collecting membership donations from the community. There are also some other key sponsors & partnerships.
