Friday, March 13th – Flagler Drive
Don’t wait – get your tickets today.

Long version (in which I will do my best to convince you to buy a ticket & join the party):

In a town where you have a party happening every night, at some of the most amazing/opulent venues. It takes a lot to stand out in the crowd.

When planning the first Fiesta on Flagler, we chose not to use one of the standard party venues, but to focus on the natural beauty of West Palm Beach. It was the right choice.

The first Fiesta on Flagler was amazing. It was a beautiful night, with an spectacularly decorated tent on Flagler Drive. Hundreds of friends and neighbors came to enjoy the food, music & dancing.

We had all our restaurants serving Latin-themed food. Los Altos Jalisco, Dr Limon Ceviche Bar, Don Ramon, Aioli, Galley at Hilton, Table 26. There were three bars, with local craft beer, margaritas and other mixed drinks.

Of course there was a mariachi band & cigar rollers.

We had so much fun last year, we’re doing it all over again. This year is going to be twice as big!

Check out our amazing food & drink vendors!

We’ve got more food & drink, new sponsors a bigger tent, more music and more fun. Everything is ready – all we need is you! Don’t miss it. Get your ticket now.

We had over 100 people partying in the street into the night!

Despite our best efforts to get the word out last year, we still had people who were surprised and delighted find this festive event during their evening walk with their dog. Some of whom went home, changed and came out to join the party!

Did you get your ticket yet? OK, let’s continue.

Where is my money going? Tickets are $75 – all food and drinks are included! Unlike some events which serve small portions and tastes, at Fiesta on Flagler YOU WILL NOT GO HOME HUNGRY.

Our amazing vendors are donating the food and drinks, the city worked with us on permitting costs for closing the road (it’s a complex process), so all the money raised is going directly to benefit South End Neighborhood Association and Family Promise of North & Central Palm Beach.

In the first Fiesta on Flagler we raised over $18,000 for the following non-profits.

The South End Neighborhood Association was formed in 2004. Our neighborhood in West Palm Beach, Florida is bounded by Southern Boulevard to the north, the Lake Worth spillway to the south, the intracoastal waterway to the east, and the FEC railway tracks to the west. There are more than 2,500 homes in the South End. Currently we have over 300 households as members and SENA is growing fast!

Family Promise is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to helping homeless families in our community regain their independence. Currently in Palm Beach County, there are nearly 2000 homeless children registered in Palm Beach County Schools. We invite you to learn more about us and perhaps endeavor to help us in our mission. All donations to Family Promise are tax deductible.

Don’t wait till the last minute. Grab that ticket before they are gone!

Construction is happening around town. The 100 & 300 Blocks of Clematis are closed for the Green Market. The 500 Block of Clematis now host the awesome and car-free 500BLK party every weekend till March.

The Palm Beach Boat show will close Flagler for several weeks, and SunFest will start immediately thereafter.

Sometimes it’s enough to make you ?

Fear not! The City of West Palm Beach just partnered with Waze GPS App (owned by Google) to update the public with real-time traffic information.

So now before you leave your house you can map out your route to avoid road closures and traffic.

The city is using the Waze for Cities partnership to accomplish this.

Waze’s primary goal is to be your partner in mobility. That means getting Waze-reported incident data to government officials who can help, whether it’s a five-car pile-up or a pothole. It means getting data from government partners to ensure Waze drivers have the best real-time, location-based information about what’s happening in their communities. And of course helping cities improve congestion, sustainability, and access through carpooling.

“The City is increasingly using data and technology to help improve the lives of our citizens, business owners, and visitors,” said Mayor Keith A. James. “The information-sharing partnership with Waze helps us to communicate with the public and inform decisions. This is one of many steps we are taking to utilize technology to improve quality of life and shape our city’s future.”
