2018 Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival

Living on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, we enjoy fresh seafood year round. And our local chefs are second to none. So, when the Marco Island Sunrise Rotary Club wanted to raise money for their philanthropic endeavors back in 2007, it made sense that seafood should be a part of it. With the help of another local rotary club and the Kiwanis, this annual event quickly became a local favorite. A few years later, music was added into the mix. Now, more than 10,000 people come to the festival every year. The latest incarnation, the 2018 Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival, just may be the biggest event of its kind on Marco Island ever.

Help the Rotary & Kiwanis clubs continue their community programs by attending the 2018 Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival. You enjoy three days of fun. Our community and our children reaps the rewards.

Naples’ own Bill’s Steak & Seafood restaurant signed up to bring lobster rolls and meals to the masses for the 2018 Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival for the first time. Marco Island’s own Pincher’s Crab House joins in with tasty chowders, crawdads, grouper, fresh fish, shrimp, stone crab, and crab cakes. Not much of a seafood fan? That’s OK. You’ll have plenty of other “landlubber” fare to choose from. A special Kids Zone opens at 11 am each day of the festival. After all, this is a family-friendly event. In the Kids Zone, children are free to do some rock climbing, play in the bounce house, slide down the giant inflatables, and work off their frenetic energy on the trampolines. Meanwhile, you get to shop to your heart’s content on vendor row. While musical acts keep guests entertained throughout the entire day, the headliners are the Ben Allen Band (Fri, 6 pm to 9 pm), Almost ABBA (Sat, 6 pm to 9 pm), and Deb & the Dynamics Band (Sun, 2 pm to 5 pm).
