January means it’s time to get in the mood for seafood at the
12th Annual Port Salerno Seafood Festival
Stuart, FL (December 11, 2017) — Get in the mood for seafood! It’s time for the 12th Annual Port Salerno Seafood Festival. The fun begins Saturday, January 27th, 2018, 10am to 8pm. This local event boasts the best seafood that you will find at any festival, a great music line-up, arts, crafts and local business vendors, a Kids Fun Zone, mermaids, pirates and more.
“There is a reason why the seafood is so delicious,” says Edward “Butch” Olsen, Jr., president of the Port Salerno Commercial Fishing Dock Authority. “We serve the freshest seafood and locally caught fish when possible. The majority of our seafood is prepared by the fishermen and their families. This is truly a family affair.” The event also features Port Salerno’s finest restaurants.
Our festival is fortunate to have the resources and support of many sponsors including Southern Eagle Distributing, our many media and business partners, and more than 1000 volunteers who graciously support this event. In addition to supporting the commercial fishing docks in Port Salerno in 2017, this event gifted more than $20,000 to local charities.
Advance tickets are just $7 online. Admission at the gate is $10 for adults, children 12 and under are free. The festival provides complimentary transportation to and from the event via trolley or water taxi.
