What do you get when you put Miami’s finest seafood restaurants on the sands of Sobe for one day only? There’s only one answer: It’s the Annual South Beach Seafood Festival!

Saturday, October 21 will host the 4th Annual South Beach Seafood Festival featuring pop up café’s from the likes of Joe’s Stone Crabs, Naked Taco, Red, the Steakhouse, CJs Crab Shack, Drunken Dragon, A Fish Called Avalon, Naiyara, Poseidon, Toro Toro, Trulucks, and more. Together, 17 restaurants will be serving you right on the sand – it’s four blocks of fun to be exact! Restaurants will showcase an eating experience unlike any other as you stay refreshed with a glass of delicious Kendall Jackson Chardonnay or ice cold Jack & Coke! Guests will enter into this year’s upgraded experience @SobeSeafoodFest ready for a good time.

There are two types of Festival Tickets and both General Admission and VIP include an all-day open bar available at any of the 30+ added bar locations. General admission starts at only $45; this low price gives guests the opportunity to pick and choose which delicious restaurants to try – all of which are bringing their premium menu items at affordable prices between $5 – $10. This is not a tasting festival; this is an eating festival. Enjoy Stone Crabs, Lobster Waffle Cones, Steak & Lobster Skewers, Shrimp Tacos, Oysters, Shrimp Cocktail, Gyros, Crab Cakes, Grouper in a Bag, Lobster Mac ‘N Cheese and more. But please, don’t go home hungry!

Enjoy the all new JACK DANIEL’S BEACH CLUB featuring local DJs playing today’s hottest beats all day long as you lay out, courtesy of Boucher Brothers Management. Or put your toes in the sand with some KJ Avant corn hole boards and other life-size games at the all new beer garden. The Main Stage will be jamming all day long with live music from South Florida’s best bands, so you can dance the day away. If you’d like to learn a little something while you’re out there, step into the WHOLE FOODS MARKET Culinary Showcase Kitchen , where the featured chefs and mixologists will take you to another level and make you the ultimate master seafood pairings chef. Or, better yet, hop on over to the CORONA BEER GARDEN or grab a sampling from OPEN BLUE COBIA, the newest sponsor to join us and host a virtual realty experience just for you with a bite of this rich and delicious white fish.
