Life is all about growth and change, and the upcoming Royal Palm Beach Seafood Festival that runs March 16-17 is no exception. Born in downtown West Palm Beach as a one-day event, the popular seafood festival has grown to two full days and now calls the beautiful and spacious 167-acre Commons Park in Royal Palm Beach home.
This year’s festival runs Saturday, March 16 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, March 17 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The family-friendly event will feature a variety of fresh and delectable seafood dishes. Plenty of ice-cold tasty libations will also be available for purchase.
Festival organizer, POTTC Events, says landlubbers need not fear, as there will be plenty of non-seafood menu selections on hand to choose from as well. The festival will also have several big-top shade tents for dining comfort.
In addition, organizers say that this year’s festival will offer a significantly larger selection of delicious seafood, all prepared by an abundance of quality vendors and local chefs that will be ready to serve the large crowds.
The two-day event will also play host to live entertainment on three stages, interesting exhibits and displays, an assortment of arts & crafts vendors and an interactive Kids’ Fun Zone. And what seafood event would be complete without pirates, mermaids and pirate ships?
There will also be plenty of free parking.
Commons Park is at 11600 Poinciana Blvd. in Royal Palm Beach. For more information on the seafood festival, go online to royalpalmbeachseafoodfestival.com.
