Dania Beach, FL — The Dania Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (DBCRA) proudly announces its award winning, 6th Annual Dania Beach Arts and Seafood Celebration (DBASC). The DBASC will be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 19th and 20th, 2018 from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm on Saturday and 11:00 am to 6:00 pm on Sunday. The event will take place again at Frost Park, located at 300 NE 2nd Street in Dania Beach. The DBCRA is excited to bring DBASC back for a 6th year.

“This event attracts thousands to the City for an enjoyable and unique Dania Beach experience. In addition, DBASC showcases the positive revitalization occurring in Broward’s First City while providing increased economic activity for businesses and the community. We look forward to another highly successful year!” states Rickelle Williams, DBCRA Executive Director.
This year’s event boasts a “national headlining” band provided by the Casino at Dania Beach, that will be announced to the public soon. Filled with elements of beautiful art, crafts, performance street art, live musical entertainment and delicious seafood, this event attracts over 25,000 people annually to the City of Dania Beach.

Plan to attend both days and watch Sand Artists create an exciting sculpture with 100 tons of sand. The finished masterpiece will be revealed on Sunday afternoon and guests won’t want to miss taking a selfie at the sculpture. There will be loads of mouth-watering food, great art and crafts, children’s activities, wall to wall music, as well as exciting action for the whole family. Expect to enjoy and experience something original and special while relaxing in Frost Park. Bring your family, friends, lawn chairs, blankets and enjoy the unique festival and Dania Beach’s hospitality in the quaint and charming town.
