Community, music and arts events of relevance to the Space Coast

The Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival is a 6-day annual event held in Brevard County, Florida the last week in January. The event offers educational field trips, classes and workshops that promote the conservation of nature.



Francisco “Gordillo” Arredondo Baba Oñi’s artwork straddles two worlds – the contemporary art market and Cuba’s subterranean mysticism. A highly skilled and internationally acclaimed artist and a priest initiated into the Afrocuban religion of Santeria, Gordillo paints a personal vision of his Congo and Yoruba inheritance. His paintings embody a mythology that simultaneously divulges and celebrates the island’s rich African spiritual legacy. Born in 1964, Gordillo graduated from Havana’s famous San Alejandro Art Academy in 1988.

Florida Institute of Technology will celebrate the life and achievements of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14, in the Hartley Room of the Denius Student Center on the university’s Melbourne campus.

The Exploration Tower at Port Canaveral will be the venue for the Space Coast’s hottest event next year when Space Coast Daily presents the three-day 2016 Seafood & Music Festival at Port Canaveral.

The Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse is proud to present the original classic version of "Nunsense", a musical comedy with book, music & lyrics by Dan Goggin.

The Little Sisters of Hoboken display their divine talents in a zany benefit revue. In an effort to raise money for their fallen Sisters--unfortunate victims of a convent cooking accident--Mother Superior and her order of eccentric and endearing nuns show the lighter side of being Catholic. With riotous dance numbers, show-stopping songs and side-splitting wit, you'll swear Nunsense was heaven-sent!
