    24th Annual Seafood Festival  August 29 & 30

    Seafood and music lovers from the tri-state area eagerly await the Long Island Maritime Museum’s annual Seafood Festival!  This two-day event celebrates the regions famous oysters, clams and seafood traditions and brings together locals and visitors alike for a weekend full of hometown flavor and big time fun.

    The museum grounds, overlooking the beautiful Great South Bay, will become a walking village that offers something for everyone:  Local cuisine, live music, arts and crafts, children’s activities, pirate shows, educational exhibits and more.

    “The Seafood Festival has really evolved from a small, local affair into one of our area’s premier events, drawing thousands of people from all over the east coast to the museum.    As a not-for-profit organization, the museum relies on fundraisers to support its mission of preserving Long Island’s rich maritime heritage for educational purposes.  It’s wonderful to share the museum with so many over the course of a weekend for such a great cause” stated Kathleen Prokesch, the museum’s special event director.

    The festival, made possible via the support of many generous sponsors including Blue Point Brewing Company, Livalo, Blue Island Oyster Company and Claws Seafood Market, will celebrate its 24th anniversary this year and promises to be the biggest and best yet.   While the main attraction is the largest variety of fresh, local seafood to be found on the south shore, the other draw is the event’s Main Stage, which will include a diverse array of fantastic live music from New York’s top rock, pop and country bands.

    Admission is $8.00 per person and is free for children ages 5 and under

    The museum is located at 88 West Avenue in West Sayville and the festival hours are 10:00 am – 7:00 pm on both days.  Other than handicap access, parking is not available on sight.  Free parking and shuttle bus service will be provided from the Baymen Soccer Field located at Cherry Avenue and Tarriff Street in West Sayville.
