Wine tasting in our courtyard, hosted by Gilded Grape Winery, is very popular at Alive After 5.

This event, featuring art, music, shopping, and food, is sponsored by the Downtown Merchants Association, and takes place on the third Thursday of every month, from 5-8 pm.  Shops and galleries are open for browsing, and local musicians will entertain you.  Enjoy the evening by taking a pleasant stroll with friends through historic downtown Punta Gorda, and then stop in at one of our many fine restaurants for a leisurely meal.  Sea Grape Gallery will be ready to welcome you with complimentary refreshments, wine tasting by Gilded Grape Winery, and artist demonstrations.  Our artists are always available to assist you, and to discuss their artwork and techniques.

Alive After 5 now features additional artist participation, food trucks. and so much more!
