About this event

If relaxing, having fun, enjoying good food and listening to great live music over the weekend would be ’The Plan’ — we have exactly what you need at the 5th Annual Englewood Seafood & Music Festival. This year the event will be held at Pioneer Park just off West Dearborn Street.

Dates of the festivities are February 2nd-4th, 2024. The fun and relaxation starts Friday evening 4pm-10pm and continues Saturday 11am-10pm and Sunday 11am-6pm. Admission is FREE! The event is produced by Paragon Festivals in association with Sarasota County.

Choose your foods from a diverse menu of seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes all cooked fresh on site by local restaurants and food purveyors. Seafood dishes are prepared using only the freshest local and sustainable ocean resources from the Florida Gulf Coast. Select from a diversity of side dishes and of course – awesome desserts! Liquid refreshment includes selections of alcoholic, non-alcoholic and fruit drinks along with sodas and bottled water.

While immersed in great food, listen to some of Florida’s top musical groups from genres such as R&B, blues, jazz, rock and Caribbean sounds. Scheduled performers in 2023 were: Gary Memphis Rub, Christal Shawanda, 22N, YaYa Diamond Band, Sean Chambers, Billy Rice Band, Kettle of Fish, Memphis Lighting, Jacked up, Dr Dave, Gas House Gorilla. The Band Performance Schedule will be posted as we get closer to the event.

During breaks between performances, enjoy time shopping a marketplace of fine arts, crafts, and select fine products and food items.

This is Plan A! All you need do is come to the event and partake in all the festivities! Remember: YOU are the most important ingredient and have earned this time! We look forward to seeing you and having you part of this growing, vibrant event in Englewood.
