The bargain-lover’s event typically features merchandise for sailors and boaters, anglers, kayakers, fans of the Florida Keys’ underwater realm and others who enjoy experiencing the island chain’s unique seafaring environment.
More than 150 vendors are expected to display and sell their wares at the event, to be held on the grounds of the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce, mile marker 31 oceanside on Big Pine Key.
Dive and snorkel equipment, fishing gear, boating supplies and nautical-themed merchandise of all kinds are to be among the items on hand for purchase. Attendees also can find items to enhance a comfortable coastal lifestyle as well as colorful clothing, jewelry and other unique wares created by talented Keys artisans.
In addition to the offerings for sale, the family-friendly event includes live music by local and regional musicians and bands. Attendees can savor Keys-style and casual food and beverages purchased from on-site vendors, and multiple raffle giveaways are scheduled to round out the fun.
Proceeds from the Big Pine Nautical Expo are to benefit the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce.
