A Finger Lickin' - Hot Pickin' Good Time!


Saturday April 18 10am-7pm

It's back!  The Annual Suncoast BBQ and Bluegrass festival.  They consider this festival to be one big family outing and it sure does feel that way.  Come sample a variety of BBQ from competitors in the BBQ competition, if your not a BBQ person head over to the chilli cook off, there is also a dessert bakeoff for all you sweet toothes, but don't eat too much you can't stomp your boots to the afternoon Bluegrass.  Not much for dancing?  Head over to the Corn Hole Tournament or go shoot sporting clays.  There's a park for the little ones and an antique tractor show for all you die hard John Deere fans.  There is so much more than BBQ and Bluegrass but the music alone is worth going for.  There are some fantastic acts this year, Including: 





Bring out the family and have some fun! It's all for a great cause, the handicapped children of the Sunshine State! Each year The Suncoast BBQ & Bluegrass Bash holds this annual fundraiser for the Suncoast Foundation for Handicapped Children, Inc. (SFHC). This fantastic organization has built over 74,000 square feet of buildings in Sarasota County. The buildings are located on three separate campuses: Sarasota, Venice, and North Port, and are leased to non-profit organizations rent-free. Presently the facilities are occupied by Special Olympics, The Florida Center, Community Haven, Children’s First, and the Loveland Center and serve over 8,000 special needs children annually. Proceeds from the Suncoast BBQ & Bluegrass Bash will be used to support and maintain all of these facilities both now and in the future.

It's community fundraisers like this that make Venice such a wonderful community to live and raise our families! If you're considering a move to the Venice Florida area, give the Nick Flerlage Team a call. We'd love to show you around the area and show you why we say....Isn't it time you "Live The Paradise Life"?
