Visit Big Arts in Sanibel Island

One of the best things about enjoying a vacation in a new place is discovering everything it has to offer while you are there. We believe that a vacation should include relaxation time in a stunning place like one of our Sanibel Island condo rentals. It should also be a time where you get to enjoy exploring new areas, find some fun things to do, and maybe even learn a little while there.

We will admit that while the Sanibel Island beaches are incredible, one of the biggest draws to this island is Big Arts!

Another one of our favorite things about Sanibel Island is the many incredible things that you will find to do while you are here. Whether you are looking to enjoy the warm waters of the Gulf, the delicious food, or the rich culture, we have everything you could need right here!

About Big Arts

Created and founded in 1979, Big Arts was created with the vision of having a special gathering place where artistic and educational experiences could be accessible to all. Luckily, that vision came true and is still thriving today! Big Arts provides an array of quality entertainment, arts, and education programs; that enrich Sanibel and Captiva resident’s and visitors’ lives.

Newly Renovated

Big Arts got a nice little revamp in 2019 and is gearing up for their grand reopening. By adding a second story to their theater, they were able to increase the venue’s size. While the seating capacity didn’t change much, the renovations were still significant. The new stage is now 2.5 times larger than the original, and it can be made even large by removing the first row of seats.  

Other new additions include the new drapery package, automated riggings, and even new lighting and sound equipment. With the incredible state-of-the-art sound and lighting package, there are 14 moving lights, giving the stage and those performing on it the lighting that they truly deserve. 

Plan Your Next Vacation
