The South Beach Seafood Festival is almost here!  The famed outdoor food & drink Festival (#SobeSeafood) kicks off south Florida’s famed Stone Crab Season, with five days of food, fun, culinary competitions, creative cocktails, South Beach scenery, and general seafood frenzy. This “culinary showcase of epic proportions and curated week-long experience” has already garnered substantial accolades, including: “One of its Top 5 Specialty Festivals in the Country” by USATODAY; “The Top 5 Things to do this fall” by Forbes; and “The Best Seafood Festival in the US” by Travel Channel. And the best part, it all goes to benefit a great cause in Miami Dade County with CI Foundation’s EAT SMART program.

The week of festivities culminates on SATURDAY, October 26, with the spectacular 7th Annual South Beach Seafood Festival along the majestic South Beach.  This showcase event spans five full blocks, as over 14,000 seafoodies come to enjoy a day of fun, drinks, live entertainment, and fun in the South Beach sun.
