Punta Gorda Seafood & Music Festival

Outdoor food and fun await at the 3rd Annual Punta Gorda Seafood & Music Festival at Laishley Park in Punta Gorda on January 12th-14th, 2024. Come be a part of the fun, food, festivities and relaxation beginning Friday evening from 4pm-10pm continuing Saturday 11am-10pm and finishing Sunday 11am-6pm. The event is produced by Paragon Festivals. General admission is FREE!!! 

This seafood and music festival is created like an outstanding meal that incorporates and blends the finest ingredients. Choose entrees (seafood, meat and vegetarian) cooked fresh onsite. Add on with a diversity of side dishes and of course – scrumptious desserts! Select from both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. 

Then sit back and be caressed by the captivating sounds of live musical performances on stage by some of Florida’s and the region’s top musical talents. Performers scheduled for last year’s festival were: Annika Chambers Deslauriers and Paul Deslauriers, Ronnie Dee and the Superstars, Memphis Lighting, Jack’D Up, Sean Chambers, Thunder Beach, Reggie King Sears, 22N, Kettle of Fish, K-Luv and United Funk Foundation, and One Night Radio. Check back for an updated entertainment schedule for the 2024 event.

The final ‘seasoning’ is shopping a marketplace of arts and crafts (e.g., painting, mixed-media, glass), gourmet food items and specialty products. Enjoy during the breaks between band performances!

“Normal” is oh so good, isn’t it! Come join us and enjoy “normal” once again!

NOTE: Bands and performance times subject to change – please check back periodically!
