This event celebrating Manatee County's history will feature heritage artisans, live performances, demonstrations, food vendors, and make-and-take crafts.
We will also be having our second annual HAIRitage Days Beard and Mustache Competition. Men, women, and children are invited to participate. There will be categories for real facial hair and fake beards and mustaches. Winners will receive a $50 gift card.
Don't miss special performances in our 1887 Old Meeting House by the GoodVibes and the St. Pete Sea Shanties.
The GoodVibes will give a lively, interactive, family friendly performance, "The Good Old Days - from The Gay 90's to World War I ". They will show historical photographs from downtown Bradenton and play songs popular in the eras the photographs depict.
The St. Pete Sea Shanties sing traditional tunes sung by sailors, fishermen and dockworkers during the Age of Sail (ca. 1571—1862).
