Coconut Grove Seafood Festival coming in October

So as the hot days of summer come sweeping in, we can dream of the Coconut Grove Seafood Festival coming this fall, right around Stone Crab Season's start. The Seafood Festival is Sunday, October 20. It's all about celebrating seafood, waterfront living and giving seafood lovers their fill of the freshest, tastiest delicacies of the sea. 

Bushels of shrimp, oysters, crawfish, lobster, clams and fresh fish will overflow at Peacock Park. This festival screams Coconut Grove and it's amazing that it has not been done before. But leave it to our friend Tony Albelo to bring us something new. Tony is the man behind the Grove Slam! fishing tourney, the Grovetoberfest beer festival and the Sprung! beer festival. In fact, the Seafood Festival will go back to back with Grovetoberfest, which is happening the day before on Saturday, October 19!

There will be something for everyone with a multitude of seafood prepared in a variety of ways including Caribbean with its Bahamian cracked conch and Jamaican Jerk grilled fish, Latin American offering paella and Peruvian ceviche, Cajun with its gumbo, jambalaya and crawfish étouffée, North Eastern offering traditional chowders, lobster rolls and clam boils, Asian with the always satisfying sushi and sashimi and, last but not least, Florida seafood with its world-famous stone crab, lobster and fresh fish.    

In addition, people can head over to the "Grove Wharf," where a farmer’s market meets seafood, where experts will be on hand to help them select the right items to purchase and take home. 

To complete the festive equation, the Coconut Grove Seafood Festival will have a constant stream of live music including calypso, steel drum, reggae and Island Escapism. The Festival will also feature several nautically-themed exhibitors showcasing art, jewelry and decor.

Admission for the Grove Seafood Fetival is $15 per person online at CoconutGroveSeafoodFestival.com. Children 12 years and under enter for free. Tickets will also be available at the door for $25.
