7th Annual South Beach Seafood Festival is back

From Oct. 22 to Oct. 26, you can frolic on South Beach and eat all the seafood you want at the 7th Annual South Beach Seafood Festival. It’s always held at the start of stone crab season for good reason, and the evening at Joe’s Stone Crab is already sold out. 

But tickets are available for other events, and you can save 20 percent off now. Tickets can be found here.

General admission to the fest on the sand at Lummus Park is $39.20 right now and includes access to an open bar from noon to 7 p.m. on Oct. 26, as well as bites from area restaurants. Tickets to previous days’ events start at $120 on up. There’s a VIP chef showdown on Oct. 25 and more. The festival benefits CI Foundation’s Eat Smart program that provides healthy meals and nutritional advice to Florida’s youth.
