Top Attractions

Chasco Fiesta
Founded in 1922, two years before New Port Richey was incorporated, the Chasco Fiesta (chascofiesta.com) is a cultural festival and fundraising event that benefits local charities while celebrating the area’s rich Native American heritage. The festival takes place in spring, usually over two successive weekends in late March. Highlights include a decorated boat parade on the Pithlachascotee River, an authentic tribal pow wow and amusement park thrill rides on a carnival midway. Competitive sporting events, including bowling, golf and softball, are also a part of the festivities.

Richey Suncoast Theatre
For a bit of arts and culture while in town, head to the Richey Suncoast Theatre (richeysuncoasttheatre.com). This historic structure opened as a movie house in 1926 and was originally known as the Meighan Theatre, named after Thomas Meighan, a silent film star of the era who built a winter home in New Port Richey. In the modern age, the theater is home to a community theater group that stages productions on weekend nights, as well as Sunday matinee performances, and also hosts occasional music concerts.

Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park
Even though it’s part of the heavily populated Tampa-St. Pete metro area, New Port Richey still retains a surprising amount of undisturbed nature worthy of exploration. The 8,300-acre Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park (portal.pascocountyfl.net) is a protected watershed and park area where visitors can hike, bike, go bird watching on an Audubon Society-designated trail and camp overnight. Trek through a variety of forested and wetland coastal habitats on 13 miles of hiking trails or on 6.5 miles of paved trails open to bikers and roller bladers that connects to the Suncoast Parkway Bike Trail.

Green Key Beach
The New Port Richey area doesn’t have long stretches of beach or wave action like the panhandle section of the state, so don’t expect to find a Jimmy Buffett-esque beach combing experience. You can still find a small, uncrowded patch of sand on the Gulf at Green Key Beach. Green Key Beach is part of Robert K. Rees Memorial Park, New Port Richey’s only public beach. Here you can comb a short stretch of sand, swim, fish and stroll the boardwalk. Bring a picnic lunch, because this is a park area without concessions.s.
