LagoonFest brings to life everything there is to know on the Lake Worth Lagoon. Best of all, you can look over those gleaming Lagoon waters and love its beauty.
 
The Event
First, it’s FREE! And that’s just for starters. LagoonFest brings to life one of the most incredible urban estuaries in Florida – Lake Worth Lagoon. Find the event along Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach, with the actual Lagoon providing a gorgeous backdrop. Listen to live music, see wildlife presentations, try your luck in the kayak regatta, visit 40 plus exhibitor booths, go on free tours, and then indulge in delicious local foods at the West Palm Beach GreenMarket.
 
The Regatta
Put together a team of four friends to kayak through Lake Worth Lagoon. The entry fee is $100 and the first heat starts at 9 a.m. It’s only mile long trip, but the worth the views of South Cove Natural Area, Palm Beach, and downtown West Palm Beach.

Free Tours
See the Lagoon, go on the Lagoon. Our partners at Visit Palm Beach are offering free guided kayak tours of the South Cove Natural Area. Tours start at 10:45 a.m., 12 p.m., and 1 p.m. Before coming to tour, please pre-register. No worries if kayaking isn’t your thing, try a bike tour of South Cove, presented by the West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority and starting at 1 p.m.
 
Picture Time, Free Calendars
See remarkable pictures selected for the official Lake Worth Lagoon calendar. And by the way, pick up a free copy of that calendar when you see the displays. It’s all happening inside the City of West Palm Beach Lake Pavilion, located on the south end of LagoonFest. 

The Location
LagoonFest takes place on Flagler Drive, home to many events throughout the year. It’s a long street, you’ll find all the action between North and South Clematis Street. Look for the Clematis Street fountains and walk through the West Palm Beach GreenMarket toward the waterfront.
