At Avalon Park Wesley Chapel, a premier master-planned community in Pasco County, it’s all about community. As 2022 comes to an end, Avalon Park Wesley Chapel reflects on some of its top events — which are always free and open to the public — from the year.
Absolutely Avalon is an event to celebrate everything that makes Avalon Park Wesley Chapel absolutely amazing. It was held on April 23 and was filled with international food, music and vendors, activities for kids, community performances, and a fantastic laser light show. The event was focused on diversity and culture, which is some of Avalon Park Wesley Chapel’s core values.
4th of July Celebration
Avalon Park Wesley Chapel showed its patriotic colors at its annual 4th of July Celebration. There were community performances, food trucks, a bike parade, patriotic bake-off, bounce houses, and numerous exhibitors and vendors. The event ended with a bang with an incredible fireworks show.
It was a spooky, fun-filled Halloween celebration at Avalon Park Wesley Chapel’s annual Spooktacular event. There was a costume contest, a pumpkin patch, and plenty of candy for all to enjoy. Avalon Park Wesley Chapel also invited its residents to decorate their front porches as haunting as they could, and awarded first, second and third place prizes.
Avalon Aglow allowed families to celebrate the holiday season together by creating traditions and memories that they can share for a lifetime. The event was held on Dec. 10 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Highlights of the event included pictures with Santa, “real” snow, train rides, and a spectacular fireworks show.
Jazz Under the Starz
Supporting the arts and providing a venue for local artists have always been core goals of Avalon Park Wesley Chapel. The latest addition to this vision this year is Jazz Under the Starz, which has been hosting monthly concerts at Avalon Park’s downtown area. Some of the featured performers from the year included Project Necessary, TFox and The Crew, David Bathen, and Follow the Fiddle Band.
Avalon Park Wesley Chapel hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on July 14, to celebrate the start of construction on the first phase of its highly anticipated downtown area. The three-story 73,067-square-foot mixed-use building plans to include 40 multifamily apartments and 23,720 square feet of commercial/retail space on the ground floor. Initial plans for the commercial/retail space include an approximately 12,000-square-foot food hall called The Marketplace at Avalon Park, as well as a co-working space, The 5th Floor.
“This phase of construction really helps us move even closer to that vision of building a place where families can build memories and traditions together in a town they can call their own,” says Beat Kahli, president and CEO, Avalon Park Group. Upon completion, Avalon Park Wesley Chapel will encompass more than 1,800 acres and will host approximately 400,000 square feet of retail and 100,000 square feet of office space in its downtown.
