Arts & Entertainment


Fort Myers offers a wealth of entertainment opportunities with year-round musical and theatrical performances, parades, fairs and sports competitions.

Beginning as a vaudeville house in 1908, the historic Arcade Theater was patronized by famous Fort Myers residents Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. For over 90 years it has been a popular place for residents and tourists of the city. Today it is the home of the Florida Repertory Theater (now in its seventh season), one of few professional regional theaters in Southwest Florida.

The Broadway Palm Dinner Theater entertains over 150,000 guests each year with its Off-Broadway productions and two banquet facilities. Another great venue of Broadway performances is the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall at Edison College. The center is also home to the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra.
