Siesta Beach Seafood & Music Festival brings friends and family together for a weekend of community camaraderie, music, art, and mouthwatering seafood delights. Here are some of the highlights of this tasty jubilee:
- The Food: The region's top seafood purveyors and restaurateurs prepare fresh and flavorful dishes using indigenous and sustainable ocean resources from Florida’s coastal waters. If you're somehow not in the mood for seafood, a variety of meat dishes and vegetarian entrees are available.
- The Music: Cavort to a live jukebox of musical genres—including rock, soul, R&B, jazz, and reggae—from a lineup of local and national stars that includes Orchestra Fuego, Twinkle & Rock Soul Radio, Jah Movement, RJ Howson, Mike Tozier, the Greg Billings Band, Kettle of Fish, the Sarasota Steel Pan Band, and the HubbTones.
- Other Festivities: A crafts village showcases the talents of local vendors, and features gourmet foods and speciality items.
