About Us

The Bradenton Blues Festival is produced by Realize Bradenton, a nonprofit organization that promotes redevelopment and economic growth in downtown Bradenton by transforming places, engaging people, and realizing possibilities..

With a staff of five people, over 300 volunteers, and many other individuals and organizations, we work hard to promote our hometown as a preferred destination to live, work, and play.

The proceeds from the Bradenton Blues Festival support Realize Bradenton’s youth, art, and music programs that are free to the community, including our Blues in the Schools program.
