Friday, May 13 • 6 PM – 10 PM

David Morris @ Marina Jack

Blue Sunshine Patio @ Marina Jack, 2 Marina Plaza, Sarasota, FL 34236

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, D’AMORE began harnessing his vocal style, piano playing, and songwriting at a very early age. By the time he was 13, the self-taught musician was already proficient in piano and would mimic the soulful sounds of Motown that were played throughout his home. D’AMORE is at his creative best when he’s at the piano or writing a hit song. His vocal influences are resplendent to the sounds of Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, and Stevie Wonder to name a few. Currently, D’AMORE is working on becoming the hottest independent artist to hit the music scene.

Sarasota Farmers Market

Sarasota Farmers Market, Lemon Avenue, and State Street, Sarasota, FL 34230

The Sarasota Farmers Market was founded in 1979 by Paul Thorpe and the Downtown Merchants Association. Its original mission was to bring foot traffic to the downtown area.

In 2009, the vendors formed a non-for-profit to further enhance the market with a focus on local farms and growers and also to support local non-for-profits and create educational platforms.

We are proud to provide our community with a connection to local farmers, growers, artisans, and chefs, right in the heart of Downtown Sarasota. Open every Saturday, rain or shine, 52 weeks a year, 7 am – 1 pm.

Saturday, May 14 • 12 PM – 11 PM

Triple Trouble Mini-Fest

3 Car Garage Brewing Company, 8405 Heritage Green Way Bradenton, FL

What happens when 3 breweries show up to pour beers at one of their spots? We don’t really know, but it should be fun!! Our friends from 3 Bridges Brewing and Brew Life Brewing will ride into town with some fresh kegs and Craft Farm Distribution will supervise. Come try a plethora of brews that you won’t find in the same space ever again. Well, at least until we all do it again. Expect an outside affair complete with afternoon and evening music, food trucks, some local vendors, and some brewers who live their lives to get weird. No tickets, no wristbands. Just a bunch of great beer for sale.
