Lychee Summer Celebration

Schnebly Redland's Winery

Homestead, Florida 33030
Website
Cost: $15 – $20

On June 30, Schnebly Redlands Winery will release the Lychee fruits of their labor in a most entertaining way during their Lychee Summer Celebration (LSC), partnering for the first time with the South Dade Chamber of Commerce and the American Cancer Society. The family friendly event has been a source of pride to the area, with South Florida being the only place in the Continental United States where the Lychee fruit is grown. The celebration will begin at 2pm, when the Farmer’s Market opens with 50 vendors and six food trucks. At the Grand Tiki Culinary Lounge, guests will expand their food knowledge and watch Cooking Demos on how to incorporate lychee, local and organic foods in the kitchen. A family Mud Run, an awards ceremony, and live music will round out the celebration only to culminate with a patriotic fireworks display.

“This year’s Lychee harvest is the largest crop we’ve seen in years, not only did the trees survive Hurricane Irma, but the crop was actually improved by the stress of Irma; it’s a testament to the strength of the South Florida community and its agricultural roots,” says Peter Schnebly, Founder of Schnebly Winery. During the Summer Celebration, the Winery will be offering three Lychee wines, and three limited special release Lychee beers from Miami Brewing Company. Several South Florida restaurants and food trucks will offer their culinary take on the Lychee fruit by way of creative recipes, such as Lychee Seafood Ceviche and Lychee Martini Ice Cream. The possibilities are endless, and Schnebly can’t wait to see their partners get creative with this year’s harvest at the Culinary Grand Tiki Lounge featuring StartUP FIU Food Mentors such as Half Moon Empanadas, Pro Kitchen Hub, My Ceviche, and Lulu’s Ice Cream, to name a few.

While guests enjoy the different variations of Lychee, they can also browse 200+ classic/modern Chevrolet Corvettes, custom cars, Jeeps, 4x4s and other classics throughout the day. The Lychee Summer Celebration Meet Up will be hosted by Corvettes & Coffee and Cecil’s Jeep Fam. Guests can also explore over 40+ artisan and craft vendors in the Artist Colony as they sculpt, sew and sand down hand-made goods. In addition, Live Painting Sessions will showcase some of the area’s best muralists using 40 ft. long shipping containers as their canvas.

At 5pm, the first Schnebly Family Mud Run will kick off, benefitting the American Cancer Society to fund cancer research. Participating runners will be given a glow necklace to display the Cancer they’ll be running for, while conquering an “all new” course compete with obstacles. While the five-kilometer course will honor the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners during an official ceremony before the fireworks, every runner will receive a medal to commemorate their run. All proceeds from the run will go to the American Cancer Society, and anyone who buys a ticket for the run will get free admission to the Lychee Summer Celebration; family members get special pricing on LSC tickets with Runner Registration.

Barry Fellman’s new large format prints from his ongoing, multi-year project, Mangrove Coast, are now on exhibit at Biscayne National Park’s Dante Fascell Visitor Center.  The photos explore the rejuvenation of the shoreline areas hard hit by Hurricane Andrew 25 years ago.  They reveal the unexpected beauty, rhythms and patterns of South Florida’s spectacular mangrove habitats.

Fellman’s photos seduce you, inviting you closer to understand them. As you approach, basic notions of scale and distance remain a mystery until your nose is nearly pressed against the surface. Then the images clarify into familiar forms of sea grasses, shells and shallow tide pools. You realize you are looking at wondrous and fantastic views of the shoreline by the beach.



The images portray the spirit of place by connecting with our own appreciation of the natural environment. Fellman’s aim is to strengthen these connections, which are crucial to preserving the mangrove habitat, the linchpin of our community’s natural landscape.



The mangrove ecosystem provides shoreline protection and serves as the economic base for the recreational and commercial activities that have made our County prosper.  It recycles nutrients and is the breeding and feeding grounds for hundreds of species, nurturing a wide range of marine life, amphibians, birds, and mammals.



Barry Fellman has served as curator of photography at institutions in Miami and New York and is currently director of Miami’s Center for Visual Communication.  His photographs have been exhibited at museums and public venues in South Florida and nationally.  He is a Silver Knight awardee and is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant.

What a year it’s been for American country singer-songwriter Brandy Clark. Clark has garnered nominations for the 2015 CMA Awards, ACM Awards and Grammy Awards, and won the Country Music Association award for Song of the Year for co-writing the hit “Follow Your Arrow”. Clark’s first single from her new album, “Girl Next Door” was recently released and has made it to several Top 40 Country lists. On Memorial Day weekend, Clark will be performing live at Seminole May 28, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. with a free Line Dancing Class on the Seminole Theatre Terrace at 6:00 p.m., where you can learn custom dances to some of Clark’s own songs that you will hear later in the concert.

Opening Act Levon’s lead singer and guitarist Michael Hall remembers his father listening to country and 70’s rock bands and thinking, “This is the kind of music people want to get back to, music I want to get back to. Honest lyrics and memorable melodies. Hopefully our music speaks to that,” he says. With influences like Pure Prairie League, CSN, Keith Urban and The Eagles, Levon’s sound is a combination of “Then” and “Now”.

The Tropical Botanic Artists in collaboration with Everglades National Park will present “Botanical Exploration in the Everglades” at the Ernest Coe Center at Everglades National Park in Homestead, Florida, November 1–30, 2013. The Center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.

The exhibition features 27 original watercolor portraits of plants discovered in the Everglades by 19th and 20th century botanists, and designated with common and scientific names that reflect those intrepid plant explorers.
Artist Kathleen Konicek-Moore and Everglades botanist Jimi Sadle co-curated the exhibition, which is supplemented by a documentary film by local videographer Eric Raits. The film deals with early botanists who braved the biting insects, large reptiles, and poisonous plants that made the Everglades one of the country’s last frontiers of botanical exploration.

Included in the show are informational panels about botanical exploration and field collecting, how plants are named, and ways Everglades plants were used by native peoples.
