Original Marathon Seafood Festival

May 22, 2020

Lobster, sunshine and live music — have you ever heard three words more important to The Florida Keys?

The second largest event held in the Keys is The Original Marathon Seafood Festival held each March. For more than fourty years running this festival has taken on an identity of its own. The Seafood Festival started as a local event for the fishing community to spend time with their loved ones while enjoying the outcome of their hard work. Slowly it turned into an island sensation and everyone wanted an invite. The Organized Fisherman of Florida still take part in putting on this tasty event and are always sure to give back to the community by sharing part of the proceeds that are gained. Pull up a seat, shuck an oyster and grab a cold one — now this is what The Florida Keys are all about!
