Sarasota Bay Food & Music Festival

If relaxing, having fun, enjoying good food, and listening to great live music over the weekend sounds like your perfect plan, then join us at the Sarasota Bay Food & Music Festival in Sarasota, FL. Dates of the festivities are March 28th-30th, 2025.

The fun and relaxation begin Friday evening from 4pm-10pm, continuing Saturday from 11am-10pm, and Sunday from 11am-6pm. Admission is Free! The event is produced by Paragon Festivals.

This is an outdoor event and pet-friendly. Please note that no outside food and beverages are allowed. Seating is provided, but you may bring your own chairs if you prefer.

Choose your foods from a diverse menu of barbecue and meat dishes, as well as vegetarian and seafood options, all cooked fresh on-site by local restaurants and food purveyors. Select from a variety 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 featuring live on-stage performances by creative and talented musicians from both the local and regional circuit. The entertainment schedule will be posted as the festival date approaches. Last year’s performances included Johnny Long, Doug Deming & The Jewel Tones, Sean Chambers, Gary Memphis Rub, Joey Gilmore, Memphis Lightning, Frank Bang, Lee Boys, Bridget Kelly Band, JP Soars & The Red Hots, and Mike Hund’s All Stars.

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

This is the plan! All you need to do is come and partake in the festivities! Remember: YOU are the most important ingredient and have earned this time! We look forward to seeing you and having you be part of this growing event.
