Community Event, Fair/Festival, For the Family, Food/Tasting, Special Event
One of South Florida’s most highly anticipated events, the Deering Seafood Festival attracts more than 8,000 people to the grounds of the beautiful Deering Estate for a non-stop celebration of nature’s beauty and bounty. Enjoy a cornucopia of culinary delights, featuring Florida’s freshest fish and seafood, and cooking demos throughout the day, with popular chefs from some of South Florida’s finest restaurants. Activities for the kids are both fun and educational, including inflatables, creative activities and a kid-friendly menu when hunger strikes. Dance and groove to live music all day long, as Virgin Islands stilt walkers and free-spirited Bahamian Junkanoo musicians weave throughout the crowd. Proceeds benefit the Deering Estate Foundation and are used for environmental education, preservation and programming.
