Punta Gorda Seafood & Music Festival [CANCELED]

February 19-21, 2021 , City Marketplace, Punta Gorda

—  Event is CANCELED  --


Our apologies.  Given the health concerns and uncertainty of this COVID-19 landscape we are living in, this event will not be able to go forward this coming year.  It is being rescheduled for 2022 where we can once again enjoy original, creative and handmade fine arts and crafts -- along with one another.


Until then, carry with you the wishes of all of us at Paragon Festivals for the best to come in 2021.  The love of family and friends will always be with us.  Our most precious gifts to send and receive.



Enjoy delectable foods cooked fresh on site including seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes. Seafood dishes are prepared using indigenous and sustainable seafood from Florida's coastal waters. Add to your main course with selections from a diverse menu of side dishes and choice of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.


While enjoying your meal, sit back and relax to musical entertainment consisting of live on stage performances by creative and talented musicians from both the local and regional circuit. Performers in 2020 were: Billy Rice Band (country rock), Brenda Watty & Her Peeps (jazz, R&B, Motown), Fleetwood Max (Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band), Free Fallin' (Tom Petty Tribute Band), The Dr. Dave Band (classic rock, country, bluegrass), Love Alive (Heart Tribute Band), Double Your Trouble (Stevie Ray Vaughan Tribute Band), CeCe Teneal & Soul Kamotion (blues, soul, roots), West Coast Steel Pan Band (jazz, Caribbean), The Verge (classic rock, 70’s to present) and Reverend Barry & The Funk (funk, soul). Please check back as the 2021 event nears to confirm performers and performance times.


Between musical performances, shop the Marketplace of arts, crafts and select fine products.


So come relax, enjoy great food and powerful live music performances. Never forget that YOU are the most important ingredient to this or any event!
