Annual Pompano Beach Seafood Festival

This festival has everything South Florida has to offer -
a great beach, warm sun, excellent food
and fun for everyone!

For more than 30 years, the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival has been a celebration of everything that living or visiting South Florida is all about:  an array of seafood that pleases every taste, over 140 arts and crafts booth, and of course, continuous music on three stages.

However, it’s the festival location on the recently revitalized Pompano Beach that sets this festival apart from many other local events.

This year, the Seafood Festival has a new layout that stretches along almost 2,000’ of oceanfront on recently restored Pompano Beach Boulevard.

From just north of Atlantic Boulevard, past the Pompano Fishing Pier, nearly to A1A.  There will be festival entrances on both the north and south ends with vendors on both sides of the beautifully landscaped sidewalk, creating an entirely new feeling with visitors strolling the length of the festival along the Atlantic Ocean.

The heart of the festival at the Pompano Fishing Pier features over 30 Seafood Booths.  Grilled, sautéed, fried.  Fish, shrimp, lobster, crab, clams, mussels, conch, stone crab.  Salads, fritters, paella, Cajun, jerk, oysters, raw and fried and much more.

How would you like your seafood? Of course, there are also plenty of non-seafood selections. Gator, anyone?
