11th Annual Florida Keys Seafood Festival
January 16 & 17, 2016
The savory seafood menu features fresh grilled Florida spiny lobster, “pick and peel” Key West pink shrimp, stone crab claws, fried local fish, smoked fish dip with crackers, lobster bisque and more. All seafood is to be prepared and served by local fishermen and their families.
Traditional regional favorites such as savory conch chowder and conch fritters also await attendees, as do hotdogs and hamburgers, while desserts include sweet flan and Key lime pie. Beverages ranging from soft drinks to beer and wine to island-style cocktails are to be available for purchase.
Plans also call for nonstop entertainment by local musicians including Paul Cotton, who was the longtime lead vocalist and lead guitarist for the acclaimed country-rock band Poco.
Admission is $5 per adult, including entry into a raffle for $250 worth of seafood, and free for children under age 12. Proceeds from the festival benefit the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermen’s Association and scholarships for college-bound students from Key Largo to Key West.
This is a great event that supports our local fisherman and their families.
Bayview Park is about a mile walk from our Historic Bed and Breakfast.
