Important Notes

The festival has sold out every year, and tickets to the 2017 festival sold out weeks before Thanksgiving. Tickets are nonrefundable. Rain or shine, we enjoy the blues. Check out our FAQ.

Due to the unique location of the festival and brunch, and for the safety and enjoyment of all attendees, there are a limited number of tickets available.

The Bradenton Blues Brunch is coordinated by Mattison’s City Grille Bradenton Riverwalk; Realize Bradenton is only offering ticket sales for this event.
