38th Annual Pompano Beach Seafood Festival | Festival Offering Lower Admission Prices

Pompano Community Park | 1660 NE 10th Street

Saturday, April 20th

The 38th Annual Pompano Beach Seafood Festival returns to Community Park on Saturday, April 20th and Sunday, April 21st. Throughout its long history, the Seafood festival has been a favorite of locals and visitors featuring a mix of seafood, music and retail vendors.

The Seafood Festival hours are Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Admission for a weekend pass is $20.00. A single day admission is $15.00.

The non-profit festival has its roots in the local community and is a primary source of revenue for many local charities and civic organizations, who oversee and operate the festival. Participating organizations include Pompano Beach High School, Blanche Ely High School, the Boy Scouts of America, Soroptimist, Pompano Lighthouse Rotary, Kiwanis of Pompano Beach, Kiwanis West Side, Pompano Proud, Women in Financial Services, Shipwreck Park and the Greater Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce.

The festival returns to its traditional Saturday and Sunday format but has eliminated Friday night. Admission prices have been cut in half, from $20.00 per day to $20.00 for the entire weekend, with single day admission reduced to $15.00. All parking within the park, a $10.00 fee last year, will be free. There will still be preferred $10.00 parking at Pompano Beach High School adjacent to the entrance.

Several new seafood vendors are participating this year, giving the food court an even greater variety of both seafood and non-seafood items with plenty of seating for dining on the top of the Amphitheater overlooking the festival. More than 120 vendor booths will feature everything from arts and crafts, to clothing, to commercial vendors and boat and car displays.

As always, the festival is headlined by a great line-up of top bands featuring many South Florida favorites, along with a few new twists to spice things up.

On Saturday, The Harrah’s Main Stage will come alive with a special “Blues Jam” at 1:15. Saturday’s line-up also includes “Vibes Farm”, “The Flyers”, “Shaw Davis and the Black Ties”, “Crazy Fingers”, and will end the evening with Tampa based “Home Grown” A Zac Brown Experience. Sunday features “Killbillies”, “Tasty Vibrations”, “The Boss Project” (Springsteen Tribute), and back once again to close out the day is St. Pete based Funk/Rock Band “Ajeva”

Broward Health’s Pompano Jacks Tent / Stage, new this year, is designed with a more laid- back atmosphere. With so much to see and do at the festival, this will be a place where visitors can simply relax and listen to live music in the shade or on the grass, while enjoying their food and a cold beverage. Throughout the weekend, enjoy local favorites including Andrew Morris, Mark Zaden, Shannon Battle, and more.
