Join us at Pioneer Park in Englewood, FL on January 26-27, 2019 for the 2nd Annual Englewood Seafood & Music Festival.  The event will take place Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. General admission to the event and live music is FREE!!


The event is created, as are all good meals, through incorporating and blending the finest ingredients.  We offer all food entrees (seafood, meat and vegetarian) prepared fresh on site by local restaurants and food purveyors. Seafood dishes are created using indigenous and sustainable ocean resources from Florida’s coastal waters.  Foods will be accompanied by a delicious assortment of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

While enjoying your meal and drinks, be caressed by the captivating sounds of live musical performances on stage by some of Florida’s and the region’s top musical talents from such genres as R&B, jazz, rock, reggae and Caribbean sounds.  This year's performers are Saturday: Mike Tozier, Sarasota Steel Pan Band, Kettle of Fish and Twinkle & Rock Soul Radio.  Sunday performers are:  Hard Luck Society, Act 3, RJ Howson and Reverend Barry & The Funk.  See the performance schedule below for specific performances times for each group.


The final ‘seasoning’ will be a walk through a small marketplace of arts and crafts, gourmet food items and specialty products.  


Join us for a weekend of delicious food and drinks, music, and shopping at the Englewood Seafood & Music Festival. Enjoy the camaraderie of family and friends and explore the shops and businesses of downtown Englewood!  We will lay the feast – all we need is you!   General admission to the festival and live musical performances is FREE!
