On November 16th & 17th, 2019 the Daytona Beach and Ormond Beach area will be celebrating 11 years of seafood, music and fun at the Riverfest Seafood Festival in Ormond Beach. The Festival takes over Rockefeller Gardens and Fortunato Park for a jam-packed weekend of exciting activities for the whole family. This year the seafood festival will feature more food than ever before, with new vendors joining old favorites on the Casements grounds. From fried shrimp to fresh fish tacos, poke bowls to authentic Philly cheesesteaks there’s something for even the pickiest eater. Wash it down with a cold draft beer or a chilled soda from our beer garden. Savor some deep-fried oreos, sweet & salty kettle corn or gourmet cotton candy as you wander.
The festival is about much more than food, however. Held right along Ormond’s sparkling riverfront, the event features two days of water activities, a wildly popular kids fishing clinic, chef demonstrations, a kids’ zone, vendors and, of course, great music. This year the Riverfest runs Saturday, November 16 from 10 am – 6 pm and Sunday, November 17 from 10 am – 4 pm. Free admission and free parking make it easy to enjoy the great variety of planned activities in both riverfront parks. A free shuttle service from the City Hall parking lot makes parking even easier.
Head down by the bridge for kids’ crafts and games, bungees, water balls, bounce houses and face painting. Of course, the always popular Kid Fish fishing clinic will be back this year- sponsored by Fish Florida, Hull’s Seafood and Innovative Bookkeeping. Kids from 4-12 can become little anglers and take home one of our 300 free fishing poles while supplies last.
