Our Events

Bring your friends for an exclusive cocktail party at Polk Museum of Art like you've never experienced! Exclusive nighttime access to Polk Museum's featured exhibits, with craft cocktails & small bites, chill beats throughout the evening, and a relaxed atmosphere to mingle & enjoy the museum. 

We feature a wide variety of farmers, unusual food trucks, artisan food vendors, plants, and a variety of crafts. We host the market every Saturday morning 9 am – 1 pm at the corner of 3rd St and Avenue C across from the Grove Roots Brewery. Join us in celebrating a healthy, connected, community event that supports local farmers, businesses, and growers. 

Bandit Market is Winter Haven's only alternative shopping event. Held at the historic Ritz Theatre, attendees can shop with over 50 local handmade and vintage vendors while enjoying delicious snacks, sweet treats and our infamous cocktails and mocktails!

Escape the heat and chill out at our indoor alternative market!

Bring your bike and meet at the Bike Shop of Winter Haven. As a group we "slow roll" through Downtown Winter Haven. We stop at Lake Silver to watch the world-famous Cypress Gardens Water Ski Team perform and then we head back to Grove Roots to hang out! This event is family friendly and a great way to see all the cool things happening in downtown Winter Haven.  

First Friday is a monthly can't-miss event that brings the community out to downtown Winter Haven for dinner, drinks, vibes and shopping!​ Centered around our downtown corridor, patrons can enjoy food and drink specials from downtown restaurants while dining al fresco under market lights or at our new sidewalk cafes. They can shop with downtown businesses who stay open late for the event, and we'll have live musicians and other entertainment at multiple venues.
