Sarasota Celebrates the Holidays

Posted by Marcia Salkin in Arts and Culture 08 Dec 2021

The holidays have arrived, and it’s time to enjoy this time of year with family and friends. That’s an easy feat here in Sarasota, as our community is filled to the brim with themed events, theaters, art, and more. Below, we’ll go through some of my personal favorites that are coming up soon.

Van Wezel Views

This performing arts hall is constantly hosting special events, though their shows get a bit more festive this time of year. Here are some of their upcoming shows:

This rock musical reclaims love as the heart of being American, with quirky, evocative, and all-inclusive feels. Shows will be held throughout December — you can find tickets and more information here.

October Market Update — We’re Still Not Slowing Down

The latest market research is no surprise — our buyer’s market is hot with no evidence of cooling down. The low inventory rate continues to raise prices, making it a perfect time to part with your luxury home. Prices are predicted to continue rising throughout 2022, so the time to buy is right now, too.

If you’re interested in buying or selling in the near future, feel free to reach out at any time. I’d be happy to help with any of your real estate needs. I’m wishing you all a healthy and happy holiday season, too!
