The 6th Annual Boston Seafood Festival is the biggest and tastiest seafood event of the summer, and will be taking over Boston’s Fish Pier on Sunday, August 13, 2017 from 11am – 7:00pm.
Presented by Boston Fisheries Foundation, Boston Seafood Festival combines a terrific family-friendly day of delicious seafood sampling, live music, local chef demonstrations, children’s activities and more with a rare opportunity to learn more about preserving Boston’s essential seafood and maritime heritage.
The days events will include food for purchase, a blessing of the fleets, an all-day lobster bake, the legendary battle of the shuckers, and great seafood sampling from Boston’s finest seafood vendors.
Tickets are $15.00 and are available at http://www.bostonseafoodfestival.org/. Proceeds underwrite Boston Seafood Festival and in part support the work of the Boston Fisheries Foundation, a not-for profit organization which preserves and protects the local seafood industry’s long-term viability as well as safeguards the ocean’s present and future natural resources.
The Boston Fisheries Foundation was created in 2012 by some Boston fish guys with the simple goal of celebrating seafood and to build The Boston Fisheries Museum, an endeavor spearheaded by BFF members to preserve maritime artifacts and history for future generations to enjoy. Additionally, members are developing materials to educate the public about issues facing the industry, and to introduce many of the delicious, lesser-known seafood varieties and encourage their preparation at home.
