Apalachicola’s 58th Florida Seafood Festival
By Forgotten Coast Web Team | October 7, 2021
Make plans to attend Apalachicola’s 58th Florida Seafood Festival on November 5th and 6th! Always held the first weekend in November, the Florida Seafood Festival is the Forgotten Coast’s most fantastic event of the year.
Battery Park Marina is transformed into a carnival of epic proportions! Ride the rides, enjoy live music all weekend, and browse through local and regional artisans’ booths. And don’t miss out on a trip down the row of food vendors. Students, churches, local non-profits, and regional vendors offer everything from fried shrimp, fried scallops, and smoked mullet dip to burgers, pizza, and ice cream.
