A winter wonderland awaits as Fort Lauderdale Beach transforms into a hub of holiday activities steps from the shoreline during the Third Annual WONDERLAND, Nov. 13, 2023–Jan. 1, 2024. Throughout the seven-week holiday experience, locals and visitors of all ages will make lasting memories through an array of sights, sounds, special activities, and performances, including the holiday MKT with strolling characters, and visits with Santa, plus holiday movies, live music, and so much more.
All of the WONDERLAND events are free to the public and presented by the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Beach Business Improvement District (BID) in partnership with the City of Fort Lauderdale Parks and Recreation Department, Visit Lauderdale, and Florida Power & Light.
Music on the Main closes out our 2023 Friday night concerts, with a new name and an exciting new twist.
