Boca Raton, Florida – The South Florida Seafood & Music Festival is set to take place at the Mizner Park Amphitheater, located at 590 Plaza Real, Boca Raton, on Saturday, February 10th. This annual event, running from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., offers attendees a day filled with the finest seafood, live music, and a wide range of activities that promise fun for all ages.
The festival is a seafood enthusiast’s dream, featuring an extensive selection of dishes from some of the region’s most renowned eateries, chefs, food trucks, and markets. Attendees can look forward to savoring everything from Key West shrimp and Maine lobster to grilled fish tacos, showcasing the diverse and rich seafood culture of South Florida. For those who prefer land over sea, there will also be a variety of non-seafood options available, ensuring there’s something for everyone’s taste.
Supporting Local Charities
In addition to celebrating the region’s culinary talents, the South Florida Seafood & Music Festival is also dedicated to giving back to the community. This year, the event is proud to support Rachel’s Gate, a family-run 501(c)3 organization focused on providing end-of-life care for abandoned senior and ailing dogs. A portion of the festival’s ticket sales will be donated to support the organization’s noble efforts.
Furthermore, the festival will feature pet adoption opportunities through Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue (JBAR), another 501(c)3 organization committed to providing foster homes and medical care for dogs and cats of all breeds and ages. JBAR’s presence at the festival underscores the importance of spaying/neutering pets and offers guests the chance to find a new furry family member.
A Day of Fun and Festivities
The festival isn’t just about food; it’s also a celebration of local music and art. Attendees can enjoy performances by some of South Florida’s top bands, including the Caribbean Chillers, Private Stock, and Smokin Renegades, across genres like classic rock and Jimmy Buffet tributes. The event encourages guests to bring their chairs and blankets, creating a cozy atmosphere for enjoying the live entertainment.
Art lovers and shoppers will find plenty to explore in the festival’s marketplace, which features nautical-themed treasures, collectible art, and locally-inspired crafts. From unique souvenirs to handcrafted goods, the marketplace is a treasure trove of creativity and local talent.
For those looking to unwind, the festival’s Beer & Spirits tents offer a selection of craft beers, festive cocktails, and mocktails. And let’s not forget the little ones—a petting zoo and various games and activities ensure that children of all ages have a memorable day.
