Sarasota Chalk Festival attracts thousands of visitors and over 100 artists to the Venice airport each year in November.
The Sarasota Chalk Festival attracts thousands of visitors and over 100 artists to the Venice Airport each year.

Sarasota and Bradenton were voted 1-2 respectively in American Style Magazine’s top arts destinations in the nation for populations of 100,000 or less. Quite an accomplishment. The culture here supports opera, ballet, symphonies, theater and family entertainment. The height of the season is from November to April, but there is plenty to do the entire year. I’ve compiled a list from online sources so that you have one location for some suggestions I have for you to spend your time in the area around Longboat Key and Sarasota.

Kick off your weekends on any given Friday night when you can always catch "Live from Downtown Sarasota - It's Friday Night!" with live entertainment at a revolving downtown location, Music on Main at Lakewood Ranch the first Friday of the month or Music Friday Night each week at the gazebo in Centennial Park, Venice.

If you have additions to this list please feel free to add them in the comments below. If you need more information there are a variety of sources for each event, just a Google search away. Find your events and fill your schedule. In that way you can enjoy your favorite performing arts and special events that this area has to offer.
