Welcome to Giving Hunger The Blues, Sarasota’s Preeminent Music Festival. Starting at 12:00 PM (gates open at 11:30 AM) and going through 9:30 PM, Giving Hunger The Blues is proud to present a full day of amusements, activities, and a tasty selection of the area’s most delicious restaurants and vendors to add to the fun.

LIVE MUSIC is always the main attraction at Giving Hunger the Blues, which always brings phenomenal talent to please the always happy crowd. Previous artists over the past few years include names such as AC/DC’s Brian Johnson, The Allman Brothers, Band’s Dan Toler, and Rick Derringer, just to name a few.

The goal of Giving Hunger The Blues is to raise money for those hungry children and families who live in our community. Established by the Generoso Foundation in 1996, Giving Hunger The Blues has generated more than $1.2 MILLION that has gone directly to providing meals for needy families.

This year Giving Hunger The Blues will donate its proceeds to the Mayors Feed The Hungry Program.
