Siesta Key Drum Circle

Published on August 2, 2017 by cgwhiteside

A must-do when staying in or near Siesta Key is a visit to the Siesta Key Drum Circle.  Head out to Siesta Key Public beach  in the late afternoon every Sunday and you'll first hear the primal beat of drums and then see a crowd gathering just south of the main pavilion between lifeguard stands 3 and 4 - the Siesta Key Drum Circle.  It's a diverse group of  drummers, hula-hoopers, percussionists, rope walkers, sun-lovers dancers and people-watchers gathering to celebrate the sunset.  This weekly celebration has been going on since 1996.  Some come to participate, some just to gawk at the happenings. Drum circle regulars occasionally perform with swords and fire, you might even see a belly dancer. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join in. Bring beach chairs or a beach blanket and get there early as the parking lot can fill up quickly.  Drop by one Sunday evening for an amazing experience.  Even after the the festive vibes have ended (typically around 10pm), you will head home with a reminder of the awesomeness that is Siesta Key.

Chip is a software Architecture Manager and Miao is a Realtor with Berkshire Hathaway . We have lived in Sarasota since 1990; we have traveled to Europe, Asia, the Caribbean and much of the United States and consider Sarasota to be one of the best places in the world. We have put a lot of love and effort into this unit and vacation there ourselves, our hope is that you enjoy it as much as we do. Miao and Chip purchased this condo in 2015. When we were looking for condos on Siesta Key, this one had it all! There is nothing like sitting by the heated pool, watching the boat traffic going up and down the bay. The fishing from the dock is fantastic - you can catch a wide variety of what the bay has to offer - Redfish, Snook, Snapper, Flounder, Ladyfish, etc. It has a boat basin for our boat when we stay there and the beach is just across the street. In the village, there are an abundance of good restaurants and shopping. In Sarasota, you can visit the Ringling Museums, Ca' d'Zan, Selby Gardens, take in shows at the Van Wezel, Sarasota Opera House, or one of the local theaters.
