Fort Myers Seafood & Music Festival

Join us for the 4th Annual Fort Myers Seafood & Music Festival held on the waterfront in historic downtown Fort Myers, FL on January 6-8, 2023. The event is produced by Paragon Festivals in partnership with the Fort Myers River District Alliance.

Festivities begin Friday evening 4pm-10pm and continue Saturday 11am-10pm and Sunday 11am-6pm. General admission is FREE.

Enjoy foods cooked fresh onsite (seafood, meat, vegetarian) with a variety of side dishes and of course – desserts! Seafood is from Florida’s coastal waters, a sustainable and renewable resource. For drinks, choose from alcoholic, non-alcoholic and fruit drinks.

While eating, listen to 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. Performers in the 2022 event included: Free Fallin’ (Tom Petty Tribute Band), Albert Castiglia (blues), Gas House Gorillas (rock), Thunder Beach (classic dance rock), Twinkle & Rock Soul Radio (rock, soul), 22N (rock), David Chastain Band (blues), Damon Fowler (blues), The Whole Band featuring Callie Chappell (Americana, rock, variety), JP Soars & The Red Hots (Americana, roots) and Frank Bang (Chicago blues). As the 2023 event nears, the updated Band Performance Schedule will be shown to the right as is this one from the 2022 event. Please check back as the event nears to confirm performers and performance times.

During breaks between performances, shop a diverse marketplace of arts, crafts, select food items and specialty products.

So if you want to relax, kick back and partake of great music and food – we have what you need! Join us for the weekend at the Fort Myers Seafood & Music Festival. We create a masterful event and look forward to seeing YOU – the most important ingredient!
