There was a very nice exhibition of local art while we were there during the Sunday Farmer's Market. We got to talk to one of the artists, too.

During our annual visit to Sanibel, we try to attend as many of the entertaining, and sometimes educational, offerings at this cozy venue. Not to be missed!

Sunday Jazz concerts, concerts, and theater....have enjoyed them all over my 6 yrs attending. Always the highlight of my trip to Sanibel. Monday Indie night movie shows what can be done with talented, committed volunteers picking the content.
