Seafood, music, art at Grove Seafood Festival

Grovetoberfest, is somewhat of an institution here in Coconut Grove, now in it's third year on Saturday, October 19, and starting this year, the day after Grovetoberfest, is the Coconut Grove Seafood Festival, on Sunday, October 20, right here on our waterfront, where else? Peacock Park is the venue for both events.

The Seafood Festival is all about celebrating seafood, waterfront living and giving people their fill of the freshest, tastiest delicacies of the sea. Bushels of shrimp, oysters, crawfish, lobster, clams and fresh fish will soon overflow at the park, just in time for the opening of stone crab season in October.

There’s no better place to savor 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" - 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.

The festival is from 11:00 am to Sundown, on October 20 in Coconut Grove's Peacock Park (2820 McFarlane Road).

Admission 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.
