Port Salerno Seafood Festival
The Fish is Fresh, the Beer is Cold,
and the Smiles are Always Warm!
The Festival is hosted each year by The Port Salerno Commercial Fishing Dock Authority, Inc.,
a not for profit formed July 13, 2004. The Seafood Festival had its humble beginnings as an annual fish fry at the docks in Port Salerno. In 2006, while Port Salerno was in the midst of redevelopment, a small group gathered to take the dock party to the next level in an effort to bring positive awareness of the local commercial fishing industry and support to their community.
That first Seafood Festival was a resounding success and attendance has grown steadily each year ever since. In 2011 over 35,000 attended the event, enjoying the only ‘on the waterfront’ Seafood Festival on the east coast of Florida from Fort Lauderdale to Jacksonville!
Every year we renew our commitment to the community by working with local organizations to share the proceeds of this event. In 2011, proceeds were distributed to the Port Salerno Annual Christmas Jamboree, Port Salerno Elementary, Sheriff’s Youth Ranch, Treasure Coast Waterway Pecks Lake Reef Dive Cleanup, Keep Martin Beautiful Coastal Cleanup and Martin Memorial Life Savers Foundation Gombay Bash. In 2012, we garnered support for a community food drive and donated 1,400-lbs of food to the Salvation Army of Martin County and Love & Hope in Action.
We invite you to come out and participate in the 7th Annual Port Salerno Seafood Festival. This year, we will again be expanding our Festival site in anticipation of record crowds to this wonderful family event.
