Posted on: September 24, 2018

Vero Beach has an extensive and storied history on Florida’s Treasure Coast. From its role as the home to many orange orchards to its current status as an island vacation destination, this city has had a busy past 100 years for this city have been busy! Residents at Orchid Island are lucky enough to call this place home. To celebrate, the month of October 2018 is dedicated to honoring the Vero Beach Centennial. Everything from fun festivals to celebratory centennial beer will be here—the only question is, will you?


Centennial Chili Challenge

Do you have what it takes to make up the best bowl of chili—or better yet, eat all of it? Find out at the Sunrise Rotary Vero Beach Centennial Chili Challenge! On October 27, 2018 over 30 competitors will cook up their special renditions of this classic dish in an attempt to win the challenge. Beer trucks and food vendors will be there, so make sure to sample everything!


Time Capsule Burial

One of the most exciting things that we can do as a society is to show the people of the future what the past was like through a time capsule. Be a part of it on October 27, 2018, when a horse drawn carriage will carry a time capsule full of things that represent Vero Beach best to its burial place under the flagpole in front of Waldo’s Restaurant. An antique car show and musical accompaniment by the Indian River Charter High School Band will follow.


Countryside Centennial Corn Maze

The famed Countryside Corn Maze is teaming up with Vero Beach to bring everyone a fantastic fall festival! You can expect the titular corn maze to be there, alongside kiddie train rides, a nature trail to hike, hayrides and even a corn cannon! Food and drink vendors will be there, so come by with family members and welcome in the fall season while celebrating Vero Beach’s 100 years! Partial proceeds will go toward renovations for McWilliams Park, so help support your community and come on by!

Private club events and holiday gatherings are held in the dining room, and families enjoy fun in the sun along the Atlantic Ocean. Not to mention the resort-style pool and amenities such as tennis, pickleball, and a fitness center available to members.

Even better, Orchid Island stretches from the Atlantic Ocean all the way to the Indian River.

This private community is committed to providing a level of service that stands out from the rest.
