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 3rd-5th, 2025. 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. The entertainment schedule will be posted as the festival date gets closer. Last year’s schedule featured fantastic performances by Rock Candy, YaYa Diamond & The Dream Chasers, Maiden Cane, Memphis Lightning, Thunder Beach, K-Luv & United Funk Foundation, Twinkle & Rock Soul Radio, 22N, Jack’D Up, Deb & The Dynamics, and Crossfire Creek Band.

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!

NOTE: Bands and performance times subject to change.
