Welcome to the 2nd Annual Venice Seafood & Music Festival to be held on May 5-6, 2018 in Centennial Park. Hours are Saturday 11am-8pm and Sunday 11am – 7pm. General admission is free. VIP Tent admission is $130 that includes an open raw bar serving raw oysters, steamed snow crab, steamed peel-and-eat shrimp and an open bar serving premium drinks, all in a private tent with a dedicated service staff. The tent’s location enjoys optimal viewing of the live music performances. VIP tickets are available thru EventLive (click on the EventLive icon below).
The event is created, as are all good meals, thru incorporating and blending the finest ingredients. We offer all food entrees (seafood, meat and vegetarian) prepared fresh onsite by local restaurants and food purveyors. Seafood dishes are created using indigenous and sustainable ocean resources from Florida’s coastal waters. Foods will be accompanied by a delicious assortment of side dishes, desserts and drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
While enjoying your meal and drinks, be caressed by the captivating sounds of live musical performances on stage by some of Florida’s and the region’s top musical talents. Music will be from such genres and R&B, jazz, rock, reggae and Caribbean sounds. The final ‘seasoning’ will be a walk through a small marketplace of arts and crafts, gourmet food items and specialty products.
So join us for a weekend of delicious food and drinks, music and shopping at the 2nd Annual Venice Seafood & Music Festival. While there, be sure to enjoy the shops and businesses of downtown Venice!
Due to road construction in the downtown Venice area the City of Venice made it mandatory for all events being held in Centennial park to relocate. So we have moved the Venice Brew Bash, this year only, to the Venice Community Center! The event will take place inside the Community Center and we have created a separate Party Zone outside so we can have the best of both worlds. 60+ beer sampling, merchant vendors and NoFilter Band will be located inside the Venice Community Center. Tickets will be required to access this area. Sampling tickets are $35 pre-sale / $45 at the door. Designated driver tickets are $5.
The Party Zone outside is free to the general public will offer food items from local restaurants and food trucks, beers on draft, limited merchant vendors and additional entertainment. Ticket holders will be able to access both spaces.
We have over 20 new breweries coming out to participate in the event this year.
