The Sarasota Blues Fest typically takes place around the first Saturday in November.

But the 22nd annual edition — now dubbed the Sarasota Blues and Music Fest — will take place Saturday, Sept. 29.

Houston-based ExtremeTix and Three Zebras Entertainment, which took over ownership of the Sarasota Blues Fest last year, made the announcement this morning.

The debut Bradenton Blues Festival is scheduled to take place at the Bradenton Riverwalk at Rossi Park (currently under construction) in downtown on Saturday, Dec. 1.
