Planning for the 2017 Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival has been underway for months. All this effort means that everything you LOVE about the Seafood and Music Festival will remain, but, a couple of BRAND NEW features will surely knock your socks off! Being coined as “events within an event,” it couldn’t be more true.
The festival opens at Veterans Community Park on Friday, March 24th at 11 AM, closing at 9 PM. The fun continues on Saturday, March 25th from 11 AM – 9 PM, and Sunday, March 26th from
11 AM – 5 PM.
The Seminole Indian Casino, which has supported the Seafood Fest from its inception, is kicking it up a couple of notches this year. If you’d like the privilege of a premiere viewing seat,
admission for three days, and just for fun, four drink tickets and a lobster dinner thrown in as well, YOU GOT IT! Yes, you get all of this for $60. This new VIP experience gives guests a comfortable VIP venue from which to enjoy the entertainment, a private tent only open to other VIPs. Tickets for this NEW Seminole VIP Experience are limited. You can pick them up at the Marco Island Chamber of Commerce at 1102 North Collier Boulevard. Call 239-394-7549 for more tickets to this fantastic feature.
Like BEER? This one is for you! New this year is a HOME BREW CHALLENGE hosted by the Southwest Florida Brew Crafters Club. The home brew fun begins at 2 PM on Saturday, March 26th. Your admission to the 2017 Marco Island Seafood and
Music Festival gets you in to sample craft beers and cast a vote for your favorite beer by 5 PM. After all votes are tallied, the winner of the People’s Choice Award will be named at 5:30 PM and be officially deemed the 2017 Marco Island Seafood and Music Fest Beer. Ten brewers will be bringing their favorite creations for you to sample. Enjoy the food, great music and sample beer, what could be better than that? Organizers of the SW Florida Brew Crafters Club will be on hand to answer your home brew questions. For further information on the competition email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2017 Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival promises to be the biggest event of the year! Enjoy shopping at the vendors, the great food and the music. It
is going to be an amazing three days and nights!
