Florida Seafood Festivals
By: VISIT FLORIDA staff
Want seafood? Florida has it, on a huge scale and pretty much year round.
Here’s a sampling of seafood festivals in the Sunshine State from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
All feature delicious local seafood, and many have live musical performances, arts and crafts vendors, children’s rides, parades, 5K run/walks, cooking demonstrations, and competitions such as oyster shucking.
Enter your best recipe and be a contestant in the oyster cook-off or just come out and enjoy a day of wonderful food, refreshments and music at the Apalachicola Oyster Cook-Off.
