Florida is known for its commercial fishing heritage and quality seafood products. Many communities throughout the state are home to annual festivals that celebrate the positive impact of commercial fishing and seafood. These family-oriented events have a local flair that is unique to each community. 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. Florida’s seafood festivals are enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.

Seafood Festival Locator

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) maintains a list of seafood festivals throughout Florida, but, because seafood festivals are not required to register with us, the list is not a complete one. Being listed does not imply that a seafood festival is endorsed, approved or otherwise sanctioned by FDACS.

Seafood festivals are listed by month in the table below and are also shown on our interactive map.
