What began just seven years ago has grown in popularity and become an annual signature event for Marco Island. “Little did we know when we started this festival it would continue to grow each year to be such a popular event.

So far, it has subsidized the major part of charitable giving for three service clubs on the island; the same three that volunteer hundreds of hours to put the festival together, the Sunrise Rotary Club, the Noontime Rotary Club and the Kiwanis Club. Each year we’ve grown and tried to make it better. This year, we’re going all out and taking it to the next level,” said Stan Niemcyzk, the festival founder.

The 2016 Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival has an all new schedule! It will begin on Friday this year, at 11:00 AM, March 18th.



In addition to a weekend of great music, all your favorite seafood specialties will be available fresh fish, grouper, crab cakes, stone crab, shrimp, crawdads, chowder and more. There is a huge assortment of traditional landlubber favorites, too. Beer and wine will be available to quench your thirst.

Over 60 arts and crafts vendors will open Friday morning at 11:00 AM. A kid’s zone with bounce house, slide, rock climbing wall, trampoline and more to wear off some of that energy while you enjoy the music, the food and the friends.
