Indian River Festival focuses on environment, local seafood and more

In North Brevard, the Indian River Festival has been a time honored tradition. A 40-year legacy of weekends of sun and fun at Sandpoint Park brings a smile to the faces of long time residents. In 2013, the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce took back the coordination of the festival with the idea of returning to its roots and focusing on the unique nature of the community.

It started with a mission statement - a guiding statement about the focus of the festival. The priorities the organizing committee could look to when making decisions about activities. This festival will promote our local economy by celebrating the Indian River and our natural resources, local food and culture, and outdoor recreation and health. It is a vehicle to promote healthy families and a healthy community by providing education and opportunity to enjoy food, fun and fitness.

The festival grounds sit on the shore of the Indian River, so why not focus the festival on the river, our environment, and outstanding quality of life.

So if you come to the festival, which is April 11th through 13th this year, don't expect carnival rides and fair food. What you can expect is free admission, free parking, and some of the following highlights:

  • Fresh seafood - the folks at Wild Ocean Seafood Market are helping us provide a focus on fresh, domestic seafood from Florida. Several of our local restaurants are working together to provide a variety of scrumptious seafood meals. Last year's fare included grilled oysters, smoked mullet, shrimp, fish and more.
  • Kites - KiteStop is a local, internet based business that has come forward to organize a kite festival within the event with their friends from the Central Florida Kite Club. Enjoy show kites, stunt kite demonstrations, and even the opportunity for children to make their own kites at various times throughout the festival.
  • Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course - the YMCA is stepping up to create a fun, but challenging cross between a traditional obstacle course and a Ninja Warrior Challenge. Although the challenges are already being issued between various groups around the county, the YMCA is balancing the difficulty of the course with a desire to inspire. There are elements planned for most ages, and the cost - well, it's free.
  • Kayaking - our friends at A Day Away Kayak Tours have stepped up once again to organize the offerings of kayaks at the festival for your enjoyment. Even beginners will be hooked on the activity after a quick safety lesson from the professional guides. You can enjoy a leisurely paddle along the shoreline of the park and listen to the live music coming from the main stage or paddle into the marina basin for a glimpse of a manatee.

Mission Statement
This festival will promote our local economy by celebrating the Indian River and our natural resources, local food and culture, and outdoor recreation and health. It is a vehicle to promote healthy families and a healthy community by providing education and opportunity to enjoy food, fun and fitness.

Intended Consequences
These items below represent the guiding principles that help explain what the festival is and why it exists.

  • Generate revenue for the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce and other local community organizations that participate in the coordination and operation of the festival.
  • Accentuate the rich heritage, diverse history, and unique culture of our community.
  • Create family-friendly, interactive opportunities to connect with the natural environment and the health benefits of an active outdoor lifestyle.
  • Provide a family environment that includes activities for all generations, with a focus on youth engagement.
  • Promote the local food economy through
  • education and collaboration with local restaurants, local farms, markets and agriculture agencies.
  • Reinforce our commitment to environmental stewardship and our unique assemblage of natural resources, the competitive advantages they produce, and the legacy we leave for future generations to enjoy.
