Downtown Tallahassee Events

April 2015

STOMP is explosive, provocative, sophisticated, sexy, utterly unique and appeals 
to audiences of all ages. The international percussion sensation has garnered 
an armful of awards and rave reviews, and has appeared on numerous national 
television shows. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional 
percussion instruments – matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, 
Zippo lighters, hubcaps – to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms. The return 
of the percussive hit also brings some new surprises, with some sections of 
the show now updated and restructured and the addition of two new full-scale 
routines, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans. STOMP. See 
what all the noise is about....

Open from 9am until 2pm every Saturday from March through November, the Downtown Marketplace features fresh homegrown produce and organic items. Fresh bread and eggs are available. Look for fresh cut flowers and native plants. These are our local farmers offering Mother Nature's best. Most of our farmers welcome WIC checks.

In this tranquil setting, celebrated local musicians play their music on stage, authors and poets present readings of their latest books, and regional artists show their fine arts and crafts. Special events bring hands-on art activities for children or sneak previews of upcoming cultural events.

Look forward to a great season continuing all the special events you'd expect and some new features to spice things up a notch.

In 1995 Southern Shakespeare Festival began as a touring company which toured local theaters, high schools, and community art centers. After Southern Shakespeare Festival’s first year, in conjunction with FSU’s School of Theater Dean, Richard Fallon, SSF established a home in Tallahassee, Florida with a free Shakespeare festival in the park.
