The Lakewood Ranch Seafood & Music Festival is created as is a great meal: selecting and blending the finest ingredients. Foods (seafood, meat and vegetarian) are prepared fresh onsite with seafood dishes incorporating indigenous and sustainable ocean resources from Floridas coastal waters. Foods are accompanied by a delicious assortment of drinks, (alcoholic, non-alcoholic, fruit drinks), side dishes and of course – some delectable desserts!

While enjoying your meal and drink, listen to the captivating sounds of live music performed on-stage by some of Florida’s and the region’s top musical talents. This year's performers include: the Kate Keys Band (Blues, Rock, Variety), Sarasota Steel Pan Band (Caribbean), Big Night Out (Latin Funk & Motown), The Whole Band featuring Callie Chappell (Americana, Rock, Bluegrass and R&B), Twinkle & Rock Soul Radio (Rock, Soul) and the Billy Rice Band (Country Rock).

Bring family and friends or meet up with associates and co-workers. Relax with delicious foods and great drinks to incredible live music. We will lay the feast – all we need is the most important ingredient - YOU!
