Wednesday, November 30 from 5-8pm
Mercato kicks off the holiday season with the lighting of the largest REAL tree in Southwest Florida!
Hosted by ABC-7’s Jen Stacy and Greg Parker, the main stage in front of Bravo Italian Kitchen will feature music from an electric violinist and dance performances from Dance Arts by Maria, Backstage Dance Academy and Naples Dance Conservatory. Meanwhile, the event lawn comes alive with a mesmerizing quartet of cirque performers and an outdoor bar provided by The Pub.
After the Christmas tree is illuminated, the Vanderbilt Strings will perform until 8pm in the Holiday Igloo outside Narrative Coffee Roasters.
Keep your eye out for Torrie, the world’s tallest elf. She will be handing out Santa’s magic glasses that transform holiday lights into a rainbow kaleidoscope.
Take a stroll through our outdoor market next to Narrative Coffee Roasters to find holiday fun & gifts. Check back soon for the full list of vendors!
