Mark your calendars! The 13th Annual Deering Seafood Festival on the Bay will take place on Sunday, March 26, 2017 from 10 AM to 6 PM at the Deering Estate.
A celebration renown for delicious catches from the sea, celebrity chefs and fun-filled adventures for the kids, the Festival features Florida's freshest fish and seafood, with area restaurants and caterers providing sumptuous delights.
Here's what's happening!
Renowned chefs from some of South Florida's finest restaurants have been invited to present their culinary expertise at the Deering Seafood Festival this year.
Also present this year is the winner of Johnson & Wales University's Student Seafood Competition, who will recreate the winning recipe.
The chefs will present their favorite seafood recipes using the freshest Florida seafood and accompaniments.
There are free tastings and quite a few people are excited to see the chef demonstrations, so remember, the demos are limited to 100 people each, first come, first served.
This year's chefs include:
Presented by Palmetto Ford Truck, entertainment will be ongoing throughout the Festival and will feature Big Harvest, a Marley-style reggae band with an English-Spanish soul flavor; Caribbean Crew, an award-winning Orlando-based steel drum band, and the five-person band Blackstar, which specializes in favorite cover songs, from Top 40 to lost oldies.
Throughout the day, you will hear the sounds of the steel drum and a Bahamian Junkanoo band, while dancing with fanciful stilt walkers.
The kids will be over the moon playing at the Li'l Shrimp Kids Zone, which features inflatables, creative activities, healthy tastings and a kid-friendly menu when hunger strikes.
But there's even more in store for kids this year! First, there's the Deering Discovery Cove Adventure, with fun, educational programming that incorporates interactive event stations with microscopes, dissections, touch tanks and art, all geared to teaching the importance of the world's oceans.
These activities highlight the Deering Estate's ongoing, hands-on Environmental Education Programs and Camps that serve more than 17,000 children annually.
In addition, there are activities for children unique to each of the world's oceans:
The whole family can enjoy activities such as the rock-climbing wall, the Pelican Skipper pontoon boat rides to Chicken Key, and Artist Lane, featuring unique creations by local artisans.
And of course, the festival would not be complete without its very own Seafood Alley, presented by Golden Rule Seafood.
