The Great Atlantic Seafood Festival

The Great Atlantic Music & Seafood Festival takes place on Saturday, March 24, 2012,  at Jacksonville Beach, Florida. This year it’s the 23rd Annual Great Atlantic Music & Seafood Festival will offers live music, fresh seafood cooked in every possible way, a festival market place, surf contest, and rides and games for the entire family. The event location is SeaWalk Pavilion right on Jacksonville Beach, which is a perfect location for this type of festival. The event begins at 11:00 a.m. and continues all day until 10: 00 p.m at night. When the seafood festival comes to the beach, summer is just around the corner.

But it’s not all about the food, there is also a lot of music at this festival.

Another great plus that I need to mention is that this is a free festival. That’s right, there is no fee for admission. The festival food court serves up a smorgasbord of fresh Florida Seafood anyway you like it – blackened, grilled, steamed… pick your favorite.  For those who are not fond of seafood (believe it or not, there are people like that), there’s other foods as well. And there are  ice cold beverages to quench that salty thirst.First Coast, Florida Keys and Louisiana inspired seafood cuisine will be prepared any way you like it- grilled, boiled, fried, or steamed.

When you get tired of the music and need a break, head over to The Festival Market. Here you’ll find unique and interesting original arts, crafts and more. There’s also lot of fun, friendly, family rides, games and activities for the kids. Also for the kids,  rides, games, and kid’s activities. And the Great Atlantic Surf Festival will bring local and national surf champions together to compete in over 16 divisions on March 19 and 20. So bring the whole family to this free event at the beach.
