February In Belize: Events Galore

It’s hard to pick the busiest month of the year in Belize…and while Christmas week may be the busiest week of the year, February may be the busiest in terms of a month of solid events and visitors.   The weather is absolute perfect.

Today is sunny and in the mid to high 70s.   Just gorgeous…


There are festivals all over Belize.

Kelly McGuire Concerts – Each year Texas singer/songwriter celebrates his birthday in Belize…a country he loves and has written many song about…

Carnaval in San Pedro


Here’s the full schedule…and here is what you can look like if you so chose.

kids2kids3Placencia Sidewalk Arts  Festival, Saturday February 13th and 14th

Super fun event with lots of beautiful art of all kinds from all over the country.  I attended in 2014 and have been dying to go back.


Jewelry, art, soaps, glass works, entertainment…and colorful Placencia.  A great weekend.


And that same weekend in Caye Caulker – the 1st Lionfish Derby.


Kill this invasive species.  Different categories, prizes and party at the Sports Bar.  They are also looking for volunteers to ride with the fisheries department to help an eye on the rules and the tournie.    They are looking for 5 people (no special skills needed) for help starting at 6:30am.


Please contact Lynne Couch-Harris directly on Facebook if you are interesting.


Belize City Street Art Festival

street festival

Just a day…but music, art and fun.  It’s right down the “main drag” – just over the swing bridge.  An easy day trip from San Pedro or Caye Caulker on the water taxi.


I attended in 2014.  Here are a few pictures.

Harley-Davidson Rally

Perhaps the most unexpected event in Belize – it was certainly for me.  I went to the 1st at Cucumber Beach outside of Belize City


and the 2nd (Bikers hit Caye Caulker)


This year they are coming San Pedro!  Not the bikes…but the bikers.
