If relaxing, having fun, enjoying good food and listening to great live music over the weekend ’The Plan’– we have exactly what you need at the Premiere of the Sarasota Blues & BBQ Festival at Sarasota Fairgrounds in Sarasota, FL. Dates of the festivities are May 6-8, 2022.

Choose your foods from a diverse menu of barbeque and meat dishes (along with vegetarian and seafood of course) all cooked fresh on site by local restaurants and food purveyors. Select from a diversity of side dishes and of course – awesome desserts! Liquid refreshment includes selections of alcoholic, non-alcoholic and fruit drinks along with sodas and bottled water.

While enjoying your meal, sit back and relax to musical entertainment consisting of live on stage performances by creative and talented musicians from both the local and regional circuit. Please check back in 2022 as the event nears to confirm performers and performance times, the Performance Schedule being posted in the column to the right.

During breaks between performances, enjoy time shopping a marketplace of fine arts, crafts, and select fine products and food items.
