Siesta Beach Seafood & Music Festival

December 2-3, 2017, Siesta Beach, FL

Join us for great food, music and drinks at the 2nd Annual Siesta Beach Seafood & Music Festival in Siesta Key on December 2-3, 2017.  

In its inaugural year, the event was an overwhelming success, drawing large crowds throughout both days to partake of the unique blending of food, music, drinks and visual entertainment.  People came from Tampa to Fort Myers and all destinations in between. The event delivered to attendees a potpourri of delectable seafood creations and delicious drinks prepared by the top restaurants in Siesta Key and Sarasota, live musical performances by top musical talents from across Florida and the Southeastern United States and an outdoor marketplace of arts, crafts and fine products.

This year's event will again serve a menu of mouth-watering foods prepared fresh onsite using local and sustainable resources from Florida's coastal waters by local restaurants and food purveyors. Meals will be served with a diverse offering of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.  Combined with the food will be outstanding musical performances by local and regional musicians in a diversity of genres from jazz bands to groups of various flavors: rock, jazz, calypso, reggae and more.  This year's performers include:  Ari and the Alibis, Sarasota Steel Pan Band, RJ Howson and Twinkle & Rock Soul Radio on Saturday with performances on Sunday by The Hard Luck Society, Kettle of Fish, Greg Billings Band and Revered Barry & The Funk.  The full performance schedule along with restaurants and food vendors participating in the event can be found at:
