We’re so excited to welcome the Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival back into town! This event is always tons of fun, and we can’t wait to see you here! 

Marco Island is a blissful small town in Florida known for being beautiful and charming. Two of the essential aspects of Marco Island are the delicious food and great music, making this festival the best of what we have to offer! From fresh fish to beer and wine, to a rock climbing wall, this weekend is by far one of the most fun times of the year for all ages. 

Scrumptious Seafood

The food on Marco Island is top-notch. No matter where you go, you will find mouthwatering seafood! At this festival, you will be able to enjoy seafood of every size and shape, including crab cakes, crab claws, crawdads, and fresh fish. But don’t worry – if you’re not a seafood or shellfish person, there’s plenty of other options! With vendors covering loads of different food types, you won’t go hungry here. With options like creole delicacies, barbeque, and even ice cream, you’re going to leave stuffed! For all Florida foodies, check out this comprehensive list of every food and wine festival in Florida for the rest of March!

Additionally, there is a bar available for grown-ups, and of course, plenty of non-alcoholic beverages. Basics like beer and wine, are right at your fingertips, as well as cocktails, including margaritas and rum runners! As the festival’s marketing and finance director Dianna Dohm says, “The food is really kind of what brings people here. What we’ve done is really increased the importance of music. We’ve brought more and better bands. Now it really is a seafood and music festival.” With praise like that, who wouldn’t want to wander on over?  

Musical Marco Island

As Dianna Dohm said, this festival has plenty of unbelievable seafood, but the music is just as important! From Friday to Sunday, festival-goers will have access to some of the best live music Florida has to offer. Bands will be performing all afternoon for all three days and include groups like the Ben Allen Band, Absolute Queen, and Catch a Wave, which is a Beach Boys tribute! There’s nothing quite like an excellent live band with some fresh seafood and your friends and family to enjoy it with!

The Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival is going into its 13th year. It has grown to become the largest yearly single event on Marco Island, boasting upwards of 10,000 visitors each year! In addition to the music and food, a kids zone is assembled each year, which includes a bouncy house, slide, rock wall, trampoline, and more for kids to enjoy while the adults indulge! With over 60 arts and crafts vendors also joining the party, you’ll have plenty of amazing local artists to chat with and support. 

What’s truly amazing is how affordable this festival is to attend. Tickets are only $10 for a single day pass, or $16 for a 2-day pass wherein you choose which two days you’d like to attend. Children under 12 are admitted completely free of charge! The festival grounds offer more than enough space for parking, but if you’d rather not deal with it, complimentary transportation is provided via bus! 

See You Soon!!!

Marco Island is a fantastic destination for all ages, family outings, romantic getaways, or even solo travel and relaxation. We’re so happy to host this amazing festival – and to think it all started with a small initiative by the Marco Island Rotary Club to make a little money and help out! It’s now grown to be a staple in Florida, and we couldn’t be happier to be near it.
