Here’s One Company Making its Mark in the Florida Festival Business — with Brett Cecere of Florida Penguin Productions | Episode 038

Florida tourism is hitting all-time highs after Covid bottled us up for the past two years so it's no wonder the festival and events industry is coming back in full swing.

Today you'll hear from one company that specializes in mostly free festivals and events and they have big plans for this Summer Season and beyond.

Today, my guest is Brett Cecere Sarasota Events manager from Florida Penguin Productions.

Brett will share...

  • One thing most people don’t know about him.
  • Who Florida Penguin Productions is, how long they've been around and what kind of productions they do.
  • How Covid interrupted their season and how they bounced back.
  • What's it is like to manage all the moving parts so the show can go on.
  • The partners and sponsors behind the festivals and events they do.
  • How Brett got into this business.
  • The Dad's Day Block Party festival coming up June 18th and the Suncoast's Largest Food Truck Rally July 2-3rd - both at UTC mall.

... and much more!
