GREENMARKET

Every Saturday; 9 a.m. –  1 p.m. FREE NOTE: The last day of the GreenMarket will be Saturday, April 21

West Palm Beach Waterfront

The West Palm Beach GreenMarket is the area’s first and premier green market located on the scenic West Palm Beach Waterfront. Visitors can shop more than 90 vendors featuring the freshest and most unique offerings, including local produce, plants, exotic flowers, herbs, baked goods, gourmet foods, teas, coffee, specialty pet products and much more.  The GreenMarket also features live music, unlimited mimosas for $10, free activities for kids, plus plentiful green space and seating for a morning of fun and relaxation. This Saturday morning ritual in downtown West Palm Beach is the place to see and be seen! Special dates during April include:

  • Saturday, April 7: Historical Walking Tour (10 a.m.)
  • Saturday, April 21: Last day of the market/Historical Walking Tour (10 a.m)
    • In celebration of the 2017-2018 season’s success, and Earth Day, the final GreenMarket on Saturday, April 21, will give a gift to market goers – and growers – a free tree of their very own to plant and appreciate.  The “Make Like a Tree and Leave” promotion is in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability and will be available while supplies last.

About the Historical Walking Tour

Due to popular demand last season, the historical walking tours are back with regularity. The tours will begin “By the Banyan” at 10 a.m., last approximately an hour-and-a-half, and end at the Johnson History Museum. They will be amplified this year, to accommodate for larger groups, and led by architect and historian Rick Gonzalez. Tours will take place twice a month, starting on October 7. The cost is $10 per person and require a minimum of 10 reservations. Visitors can learn more and purchase tickets by visiting www.hspbc.org/events/#historytours or calling 561.832.4164 ext. 2. Proceeds benefit the Historical Society of Palm Beach County.

The GreenMarket is friendly to dogs on short leashes and always free. Parking is free in two of the City’s closest garages, on the corners of Banyan/Olive and Evernia/Olive, during market hours. Those interested in arriving by boat can also take advantage of the City’s free public docks.

 

CLEMATIS BY NIGHT

Free Weekly Concert Series

Every Thursday; 6-9 p.m. FREE

West Palm’s favorite Thursday night tradition proves why it has been the “hot spot to chill” for more than 20 years. During Clematis by Night, guests will enjoy live music, food and drink specials and the hottest local social scene, creating an unmatched seaside happy hour setting. For more information, please visit Wpb.org/events or follow the City of West Palm Beach on Facebook @CityofWPB, on Twitter @westpalmbch or on Instagram @westpalmbch.

Calling all country music fans… come down to Clematis by Night to see a live performance featuring multi-instrumentalist and singer Maggie Baugh, a young, South Florida-based county music sensation. Just shy of 18-years-old, Baugh is already a Nashville Recording artist, singer/songwriter, guitar player and dynamic fiddle player. She has shared the stage with performers like Ashley Monroe, Taylor Hicks, Drew Baldridge, Josh Dorr, and Radio Romance, and even played the fiddle during live performances of “Devil Went Down to Georgia” alongside Charlie Daniels.

 

With a combination of island-style music and upbeat dancehall, reggae band Chillakaya will be jammin’ at this Clematis by Night. From an early age, vocalist and founder Kemwa was influenced by the culture and reggae community in his hometown, the beautiful island of Antigua. Guests will feel the rich blend of music and creative vibes through Chillakaya’s powerful words and instruments. Spring has sprung, and the sun is shining, so come on down!

Established in 2002 and hailing from South Florida, Riverdown is an explosive and versatile live cover rock band. Boasting a constantly expanding repertoire of more than 500 songs, spanning six decades, the band includes four skilled lead singers and the ability to perform unplugged or electric. Each Riverdown show is fresh and full of surprises. The band will take Waterfront guests on a rock and roll ride, starting with a peaceful journey down “Seven Bridges Road” and ending with an electrifying trip on the “Highway to Hell.”

The world isn’t black and white, but many shades of Greye! Guests with all interests are invited to hear this group’s ever-growing discography, which boasts something for everyone. Since its inception in 2012, the band Greye has rocked crowds both locally and nationwide. Now, they will captivate West Palm Beach visitors and locals with a fusion of many different genres that they call “Progressive Indie.” The band draws influence and inspiration from John Butler Trio, Yes, Kansas, Ambrosia, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and even video games.

SCREEN ON THE GREEN 

Friday, April 13, 2018

6:30 p.m.:  FREE activities begin

Sunset: “Spider-Man: Homecoming in 3D” (PG-13)

FREE

6:30 PM: Kids Activities on the Great Lawn

While this month’s feature film might provide an optical illusion, for which 3D glasses will be provided, Spider-Man himself will really be at April’s Screen on the Green. Families are encouraged to head to the Waterfront early to enjoy a web of entertainment, including a chance to interact with a Spider-Man character and a make-and-take creative craft by sponsor Rhythm & Hues.

Sunset: Spider-Man: Homecoming (PG-13) Movie (3D glasses provided)

A young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.

Outdoor movie watching has never been more inviting than on the West Palm Beach Waterfront. Monthly, on the second Friday of the month, the City of West Palm Beach turns the Great Lawn into an open-air theater – movie and included views of the stars and sea are both FREE. Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair and snuggle up for featured films – including newly released hits and throwback favorites. After hours, please call 561-822-2222 for information on event cancellations.

SUNDAY ON THE WATERFRONT

Sunday, April 15, 2018

4 – 7 p.m. FREE | Meyer Amphitheatre, 105 Evernia St, West Palm Beach, FL 33401

U2 by UV (Tribute to U2) | http://u2byuv.com/

U2 by UV is one of the most exciting and authentic bands on the tribute scene. With a singer whose physical appearance and vocal resemblance to Bono astounds the crowd, this Palm Beach Post Sunday on the Waterfront will make guests feel like they are at a live U2 concert. The experience is unparalleled and authentic, as the band performs the Irish rock band’s hits and classics, including “With or Without you,” “One,” “Vertigo,” “Desire,” and more!

In addition, in honor of World Art Day, an international celebration of the fine arts which is also on April 15, the City is pleased to present internationally acclaimed foot artist Daniel Pontet. Having performed at both Sunday on the Waterfront and 4th on Flagler in 2014, the Uruguayan painter will return once again to West Palm Beach. During this special Palm Beach Post Sunday on the Waterfront, Daniel will let the rhythm and music of the tribute to U2 guide his movements as he paints with his feet and hands. To see Daniel in action, please visit http://www.impulseart.us/home.html.

Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to this outdoor event. For more information, please visit Wpb.org/events or follow the City of West Palm Beach on Facebook @CityofWPB, on Twitter @westpalmbch or on Instagram @westpalmbch.
