On August 29 and 30, from 10 am – 7 pm, the 24th annual Long Island Seafood Festival will be held at the Long Island Maritime Museum in West Sayville. With live music, fresh seafood and craft beer, the Long Island Seafood Festival will not disappoint.
Long Island Seafood Festival Attractions
As you’ve probably guessed, the Long Island Seafood Festival will have plenty of seafood to feast upon. The festival’s two main sponsors this year are Blue Island Oyster Company and Claws Seafood Market. Blue Island Oyster Company, founded in 1995, is now recognized as the number one oyster and clam distributor in the New York area. Blue Island has expanded so much that they now ship Long Island shellfish all over the United States, including Las Vegas, Washington D.C., San Francisco and Chicago. The all-natural, chemical and preservative-free Claws Seafood Market has been nominated as Long Island’s best fish market twice in the two years they’ve been open. The West Sayville market has already seen so much growth in these last two years that a new location has been opened in St. James. The bottom line is that these Long Island seafood distributors’ track record indicates that they will not disappoint.
There will be a solid five hours of music on each day of the Long Island Seafood Festival. On Saturday, beginning at noon, you can see Brooke Moriber, Quarterhouse, Nikki Briar, FM (a Steely Dan tribute band) and Billboard Live. On Sunday, also beginning at noon, catch Yankee Rebel, Oogee Wawa, Big Eyed Phish (a Dave Matthews Tribute Band), 45 RPM and Almost Queen. What better way to close out your summer than listening to some local Long Island music while chowing down on locally caught seafood?
General admission to the Long Island Seafood Festival is only $8 per person. Considering all of the awesome attractions you’ll find there, that’s a bargain. Also, there’s no public parking available on festival grounds, so why not take a cab? Call us at a location near you or make a reservation.
