2018 Safety Harbor Special Events

The City of Safety Harbor has a full calendar of special events scheduled for 2018, including monthly mainstays, annual favorites and a few exciting new entries.

The City of Safety Harbor hosted 100 special events in 2017 in honor of its centennial birthday, capped by the highly entertaining Folk N Fruit Fest, with headliner Magic Giant, in November.

While the city’s 2018 special event calendar might not pack the historical punch of the previous year, the schedule is still loaded with a slew of monthly staples and annual favorites, as well a few exciting new entries, including the Brainquility Music Fest, the Bouchard Insurance 5K and the second edition of A Harbor Holiday, a multi-location holiday event that received rave reviews for its inaugural installment last month.
