Sarasota Events And Happenings For June, 2016

Sarasota offers its visitors and residents a variety of recreational and cultural opportunities. The beautiful beaches, like Siesta Key Beach and Longboat Key Beach, the breathtaking sunsets, amazing flora and wildlife are a perfect backdrop to a day or evening of enjoyment. Take in the open air venues such as the downtown market and informal concerts. Enjoy a volleyball competition on the beach, or cheer from courtside at a championship tennis match on Longboat Key. Or perhaps an evening enjoying a concert at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center then strolling downtown to one of the many fine restaurants to top off your night is more your style. The Sarasota Opera House and the Asolo Repertory Theater continuously delight audiences with spectacular performances.
