Stone crab season is here! And there´s no better way of celebrating than by checking out this year´s iconic South Beach Seafood Festival. Starting Tuesday, October 16, participate in the festival´s fun events that showcase the phenomenal skills of Florida´s top chefs accompanied by daily entertainment and live music performances.

If you love seafood, you won´t want to miss this year´s South Beach Seafood Festival as some of Florida´s best chefs deliver handcrafted gourmet dishes and specialties that include seasonal stone crabs, shrimp cocktails, fresh oysters, fish tacos, and more. The five-day-long culinary experience finishes off with its main event on Saturday, Oct 20, which usually draws an average of 13,000 visitors each year.

Apart from the incredible food available during the festival, entry tickets also include complimentary open bars that provide visitors with drinks and cocktails for everyone 21 years and older. It´s the perfect way to enjoy the South Beach Seafood Festival experience throughout the week, which also features live performances from your favorite DJs and musicians, beach games, culinary demos, and other cool activities.

Those who visit the festival will also be contributing to a good cause since a portion of the proceeds will go to EAT SMART, a nonprofit organization that helps youth balance nutrition with weekend meal plans, nutritional help for youth in Miami Beach, and implementing those programs in local schools.

General admission tickets are available at the official South Beach Seafood Festival website for $45; there are also VIP packages for $150 and a special VIP Weekend Pass for $250.
