Free Outdoor Concerts at Historic Manatee County Courthouse

COURTHOUSE-SQUARE.jpgThis fall, the historic Manatee County Courthouse Square comes alive with music every Monday this October, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., during the Courthouse Concert series. This free series, which begins on October 5 and runs through October 26, features live performances by local musicians. Food trucks offering a variety of foods and refreshments will also be available. The Manatee County Courthouse Square is located at 1115 Manatee Avenue West in downtown Bradenton.

“This is a great way to welcome the autumn weather, munch on some lunch, and enjoy some of Bradenton’s local musicians,” says Johnette Isham, executive director of Realize Bradenton. “The historic courthouse was recently renovated, with plenty of seating provided in the square—or bring your own chair and sit back and relax.” Isham adds that guests are welcome to bring lunch, or they can purchase it on-site from local food truck vendors.
