Lakewood Ranch Main Street Concert and Block Party

Lakewood-Ranch-Main-Street-concert-and-block-party

Lakewood Ranch is a fast-growing master-planned community that stretches from Manatee County into northern Sarasota. All ages are moving into this community with increased population growth from other areas of the country, seeking a better quality of life. What Lakewood Ranch offers is access to Sarasota’s beautiful coastline, beaches, swimming, and diving, and also is a compelling location for young professionals and growing families on up to empty nesters and retirees. Every age demographic is making the move to Lakewood Ranch. One of the biggest attractions is the Lakewood Ranch Main Street concert and block party.

First Fridays

Each month, the community of Lakewood Ranch comes out for Music on Main, a free concert series and block party free for everyone to attend. The main goal is to raise funds for a local non-profit each month and draw people out into the beautiful sunshine while listening to great live music. 

Live Music

Don’t forget to jot down the acts heating the streets of Lakewood Ranch each month. Sets include:

July: Rebel Heart performs pop, rock, country, and dance music from the ’70s through today. Deejays pump out Top 100 dance tunes with benefits going to Manatee PAL. Manatee PAL supports youth in Manatee County who live in neighborhoods struggling with violence, poverty, drugs, and more. PAL provides safe spaces for academics and athletics to build self-confidence through affordable sports programs in the county. 

August: Shelley Bonet rocks out with some blues and soul music along with a deejay to bounce out top 100 hits on the streets to entertain and engage concertgoers. Benefits from this month’s events go to Asolo Repertory Theater. Their goal is to inspire audiences through theater and educate the community with programs that encourage artistry.

September: Frequency M performs along with a deejay that spins dance tunes for concert goers. Benefits go to Birds of Paradise Sanctuary. Birds of Paradise Sanctuary operates an emergency rescue program for abandoned and abused parrots to give them a second chance.

In October, November, and December there are bands playing calypso, reggae, contemporary music, and dance/funk tunes. Every month is a different musical performance and event. The goal is to benefit a local charity while giving the community a chance to come out and enjoy connecting and having fun. 

Food Vendors

Food and beverages are sold on-site. Various types of food will be available from vendors around the area with something for everyone. Beverages will include alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. 

Activities

Children are welcome to attend the events with designated activities available for them including carnival rides and various activities to keep them entertained along with the music. 

Details

Guests can bring chairs or blankets to sit on. Dogs are welcome on leash. Policies require visitors under the age of 16 years old to be accompanied by an adult after 6 pm including all Main Street events and concerts.
