March is a fantastic time to get outside and enjoy local food, shops, and experiences. Vero Beach has plenty of opportunities for us to do so. From food and festivals to markets and music, this month is full of activities and opportunities for all. Below are some of our favorite events in the area. How do you plan on spending the springtime?
Main Street Vero Beach Vintage Market
Collecting vintage pieces and fine artworks is an intensive hobby. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be hard. The Main Street Vero Beach Vintage Market, hosted by Main Street Vero Beach, is one of the best places to look. On March 9th, guests will spend the day along 14th Avenue and 20th Street sifting through the racks of vintage clothing and furniture, perusing the crafts of local artists, and sampling the delicacies of local food vendors, all the while spending a sunny afternoon in the beautiful historic downtown of Vero Beach.
March Shows at the Riverside Theatre
As Vero Beach’s preferred destination for live entertainment since 1973, the Riverside Theatre has been where aspiring stars have put on performances that have wowed local audiences. Part of the theatre’s 2019 season includes Ghost Writer and My Fair Lady. Ghost Writer is the story of a secretary who continues to write her deceased charge’s works after his passing, and how society views this transgressive act. My Fair Lady is the retelling of the famous George Bernard Shaw play Pygmalion, in which a young Cockney woman takes contemporary manners, society, and perceptions to task as she works with a phoneticist to prepare for her introduction into high society. Reflecting both turn-of-the-century sensibilities and modern concepts of gender and power, viewers will find plenty that reverberates with them in this performance.
68th Annual Under The Oaks Arts and Crafts Show
You may have noticed that this area has an unrivaled creative spirit. Nothing displays this better than the Under the Oaks Arts and Crafts Show. Held by the Vero Beach Art Club, its 68th year establishes it as a cultural institution for Vero Beach. The show raises money for the organization while highlighting the works of over 220 artists from across the nation. On March 9th, enjoy viewing works by artists and chowing down on local foods while touring beautiful Riverside Park.
42nd Annual Antique Auto Show
Riverside Park isn’t home to just amazing live acts or art shows – its where you can see the coolest cars of yesteryear, as well. Come March 16th, expect to see over 325 cars from the 20th century, alongside foreign and modified cars. Events will include dash plaques, trophies, and contests as car owners compete to see who owns the best automobile. When you attend, remember to bring non-perishable food items to help out the Vero Beach Post Office “Drive Out Hunger.”

Or maybe you want to have a close encounter with manatees, otters, ospreys, and other kinds of wildlife. You’ll find all of that and more right near Orchid Island. Looking to kick back and relax on a private beach, or play a few rounds of golf on expertly designed courses?

Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club works hard to preserve a way of life for, not only the natural neighbors who live on the Treasure Coast, but the residents as well. Animals from river otters to dolphins to loggerhead turtles populate the area, granting residents opportunities to spot them as they wander through the miles of trails that the neighborhood offer. Members and residents enjoy their private beach access thanks to the neighborhood spanning from the Atlantic Ocean to the Indian River.
This private community is committed to providing a level of service that stands out from the rest. Golfing here is unparalleled, as the Arnold Palmer designed, 18-hole course is not only renowned among courses, but also holds an Audubon Certified Sanctuary status for its commitment to natural preservation. Having been established as one of the premier courses in the golfing world, Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club’s course hosted the 2018 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur Championship, and continues to host its own private golfing events for its residents.
