South Beach Seafood Festival: Where Upscale and Unbelievably Tasty Meet

Those looking for the best seafood in the country have long set their sights on Miami Beach, Florida. Not only is the seafood here fresh, it’s also elegant and innovative.

Redefining the limits of what a food festival can and should be, the South Beach Seafood Festival is coming up to show you just what Miami’s culinary scene is made of. Read on to discover what you can expect at this jam-packed week of foodie fun.

South Beach Seafood Week

When we say “festival,” we’re not just talking about one day’s celebration of all things South Beach seafood. This beloved annual event stretches out over an entire week, allowing attendees the chance to try new restaurants, bars, and pop-ups.

This year, the South Beach Seafood Festival runs from October 22nd–October 26th, with different events every night. Whether you’re interested more in high-end dining in a quiet environment, or tapas and cocktails in a club atmosphere, there’s a night for you.

Our Favorite Festival Events

This festival is comprised of several different events, but there’s a few we’re certain you shouldn’t miss. Take our word for it—these are the must-see South Beach Seafood experiences.

  • Culinary demos: Visit Milam’s Market Culinary Showcase to see how the experts do it (you might just learn a thing or two).
  • Cut a rug: The Jack Daniel’s Beach Club will be buzzing with a hot bill of DJs and local musicians.
  • Game on: In-between bites, enjoy games on the beach such as life-size Jenga and Connect Four.
  • Go VIP: The VIP Experiences in the Land Rover Hospitality Village & Goya Culinary Pavilion will have you feeling like a celebrity.

Benefitting a Great Cause

Fun and games are so much better when you know that they’re supporting an excellent cause. The South Beach Seafood Festival benefits the CI Foundation’s EAT SMART, a program that aims to provide Florida children with healthy meals, regardless of wealth and access.

Are You Ready for the Ultimate Seafood Experience?

The South Beach Seafood Festival isn’t just a way to taste some new eats. It’s a way to indulge in local music, games, and earn a culinary education.
