The Center offers a variety of events throughout the year. There’s a bowling tournament at Bowlero and a golf tournament at The River Club Golf Course. A family favorite, Lester Family Fun Day, is a holiday-themed event featuring Santa, crafts, games and performances for all ages. The annual Murder Mystery play is always entertaining for The Center’s adult audience. The annual Tour of Homes provides an inside look into homes around the island, attracting many people on the island and from surrounding areas. The Center also offer member socials, which provide a chance for our community to get together for an evening of food and fun! Stay tuned for upcoming events, scheduling details and information! Events at this time are on hold but we hope for them to return soon!
As we begin 2021, we wanted to give our members and community partners an update on our concert series that hopefully will showcase legendary recording stars of the 70’s and 80’s this calendar year.
For the third year, the Bradenton Area Convention & Visitors Bureau has agreed to partner with us; a partnership that will continue to entertain our residents and visitors alike, building upon a program that is unique to our guests and helps support the Anna Maria Center activities throughout the year.
Although we were hoping to start the concert series in early December 2020, the COVID 19 case levels caused us concern for our attendees so we have decided to wait until we know we can provide a safe enjoyable setting for everyone. At this time, our contracted artists agreed to be flexible with their dates so hopefully we will have an opportunity to schedule our first concert late Spring, early Summer.
Below is the list of artists that plan to perform at The Center, so you can plan to purchase your tickets when dates are announced:
- Christopher Cross
- Crystal Gayle
- Richard Marx
- Marshall Tucker
- Grass Roots with Donnie Iris
We truly appreciate your ongoing support and know we are excited to move forward with our third season when we know its safe for our attendees.
