The first annual Florida Blue Blues and Music Festival is taking place at the Sarasota Fairgrounds on Saturday, October 26th!
The first annual Florida Blue Blues and Music Festival continues the longstanding tradition of a blues and music event for Florida’s Cultural Coast® with national headliners in a dynamic atmosphere that caters to all tastes. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Sarasota Fairgrounds in Sarasota, Fla.
Known as Florida’s “Cultural Coast®” for its world-renowned artists, Sarasota offers visitors an escape where they can unwind in style in an authentic beach town. While travelers come to Sarasota for the Florida Blue Blues and Music Festival, they also stay for the sugar-white sands of Siesta Key and nearby islands, in addition to the area museums, art galleries and various other activities. For accommodations please contact the Hampton Inn & Suites Sarasota (941-355-8140) conveniently located near the Sarasota Airport. Contact the hotel today for Blues and Music Fest Fan Discounts.
Nestled along southwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, Sarasota’s string of eight islands are located between Tampa, 60 miles to the north, and Ft. Myers, 75 miles to the south. Sarasota comprises Longboat Key, Lido Key, St. Armand’s Key, Manasota Key, Siesta Key, Casey Key, Englewood, Nokomis, North Port, Osprey and Venice.
Bring blankets, lawn chairs and plenty of enthusiasm to the Sarasota Fairgrounds on October 26. There will be plenty of food and drinks available at reasonable prices. No coolers, pets, glass or video cameras. The show goes on rain or shine (no refunds) at the Sarasota Fairgrounds, 3000 Ringling Blvd. Sarasota, Fla.
“We are excited to have a blues festival of this caliber in Sarasota County,” said Virginia Haley, president of Visit Sarasota County, “Traditionally blues festivals have been among our largest cultural events and have attracted people to the destination. With the outstanding line-up for the Florida Blue Blues and Music Festival, I am sure this trend will continue.”
The Florida Blue Blues and Music Festival has put a tremendous lineup together for this fall’s event. This year’s headlining act is The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band which along with Rick Estrin & The Nightcats with special guest Little Charlie, Popa Chubby and Samantha Fish promises to bring an incredible day and night of music to Sarasota.
