29th Annual Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix Festival
Posted by See Sarasota Live on
Don’t miss this highly anticipated event coming to Sarasota in only 9 days!
There are over 15 different events to look forward to at this year’s Suncoast Super Boat Grand Prix Festival—a poker tournament, golf tournament, car show, fireworks, bikini contest and more— but the most anticipated events are the races. Not only are the high-speed and entertaining races fun and family friendly, but they are also for a good cause. The proceeds benefit the Suncoast Charities for Children. This 501C3 organization assists children with special needs and their families in the Sarasota, Venice and North Port areas by providing them with special events and services.
The festivities will begin Saturday June 29 and will last until the boat races on July 7 at 11am and 1pm. The races will take place off of Lido Beach and will last for 11 laps (60 miles).

Fun Fact: If you are a fan of “Deadliest Catch”, you should recognize this year’s Grand Marshal Capt. Edward Hansen of the F/V Northwestern.
