As summer winds down and the fall breezes start to cool things down to a blustery 80, you may find the need to seek out alternative entertainment. Some of the local favorites are island festivals, gallery shows, and weekend concerts. So here are some of the most popular events on Anna Maria, Sarasota and Bradenton areas.
Island Gallery West presents featured artist Dieter Lau ~ this is more my pace. Art is a big part of Anna Maria Island’s Charm. Local artists are featured in several galleries plus the seasonal Art walk. September 1-30 10 AM -5 PM This event continues through the month. SO if you go on that big bike ride you can still catch the show.
Open House Sunday from 1 pm to 4 pm. If you are interested in purchasing a home this is the day to do the walkthrough. Look for the signs and see what’s for sale in your favorite place. Otherwise, may I suggest a movie, bowling, or hitting the University Mall, if Real Estate shopping isn’t your favorite thing.
Ringling Underground is a once a month live concert featuring three local acts. It’ll take place in the Ringling Courtyard near the Museum of Art. Tickets are 15$ for adults but entry is free if you show a student ID.
Sarasota Opera House Title The Nutcracker-Ballet Film Description Our opera productions may not begin until Verdi’s Rigoletto opens in the fall, but during the summer, we’ll bring you plenty of opera and ballet on the big screen. 2019 1:30PM Tickets: $20
Braden River Bluegrass Festival . At the Linger Lodge on Braden River, Saturday, September 14, 2019 at 11 AM – 8 PM. 7205 85th St Ct E, Bradenton, Florida 34202. Tickets at $15.00 (RV camping sites available.)
Grey Gardens~ is a tragic funny and unforgettable musical about two “staunch” and legendary American women, Edith Bouvier Beale and her grown daughter, Edie. It begins at the 1941 engagement party of stunning and spirited “Little Edie” to handsome Navy man Joe Kennedy Jr. As the upper-crust New England family gathers, so do the storm clouds of trouble that eventually leave both “Big” and “Little” Edie alone and heartbroken. Rated PG-13. Ticket Pricing: Adult starting at $27, Youth starting at $15~8:00 PM – 10:00 at Manatee Performing Arts Center 502 Third Avenue W Bradenton, FL 34205.
