Music & Arts Fusion Walk set for Saturday | News, Sports, Jobs

A Cape Coral event that welcomes a combination of music and arts to the downtown area takes place this Saturday night for the final hoorah of the ’23-’24 season.

The city’s Coral Parks and Recreation Department presents the Cape Coral Music & Arts Fusion Walk on March 16, from 5 to 9 p.m. along Southeast 47th Terrace.

The city invites the community to enjoy a family-friendly showcase of local musician and artists, going down between Vincennes Boulevard and Southeast 15th Avenue.

“We encourage residents to get out and attend the last Music and Arts Walk of the season to support Cape Coral’s local artists and musicians,” said city spokesperson Kaitlyn Mullen. “An exciting addition to this week’s event includes green, glowing furniture to celebrate the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday. Attendees will be able to sit down and relax while they enjoy entertainment.”

Artists, designers, and makers with high-quality, handmade, original work are invited to participate in Cape Coral Music and Arts Fusion Walk. Acceptable categories are candles, clay, digital, glass, jewelry, leather, living plants, mixed media, paintings, photography, soaps/lotions, and woodwork.

“We’ve had a lot of positive feedback from attendees who enjoy the opportunity to support local businesses and musicians,” Mullen added. “This free, family-friendly atmosphere ensures there’s something exciting for all ages to enjoy. Some local restaurants hire acts to perform during these events to add to the ambiance, and they’ve also reported an increase in customers.

“One of the things that makes this event unique is that the sights and sounds change as you walk down the street. Performers are spaced out, so you slowly transition from one style of music to another.”

Entertainment this time around includes acts like the Naples Juggler, a juggling, unicycling comedian; violinist Jonathan Lawrence; and musician Gary Greenstein, playing trumpet and guitar.

Restaurants along the event area will also have music featured in their outdoor spaces.

The last event in February showcased 30 art vendors, which was twice as many featured during the first event. Patrons can also expect to find some businesses on and near Southeast 47th Terrace, offering food, drinks, and entertainment.

Mullen confirmed a new slate of Fusion Walk events is being prepared for the 2024-2025 season.
