Like most major events during the COVID-19 pandemic, the popular festival was canceled in 2020 and 2021. While restrictions have been lifted, there will be safety measures to ensure patrons and vendors feel safe during this year’s festival.
At the free festival, enjoy live music featuring headlining tribute band, Queen International Tribute Show Band on Sunday, and 4NR2: Foreigner Tribute and Rocks Aerosmith Tribute on Saturday, as well as musical offerings from Paul Anthony and the Reggae Souljahs, Whipping Post, Catabella Music, Kedesh Cornelius, Big City Dogs and School of Rock.
Bring your appetites to feast on a cornucopia of delicious seafood and other specialty treats available through vendors, food trucks, and local culinary artists at the Chef Showcase where you will find Johnny Alarcon Ruiz, Findler Charles and Tahnee Rolles, among others.
There is more than just browsing and purchasing from a variety of artists booths, you can also experience art in the making. Watch and interact with local artists as they take center stage at the street art live theater. This year, professional artists Andrew Moschburg, Marcos Conde, and Ivan (IVO) Yanez will bring blank canvases to life with their own masterpieces.
Major sponsors include The Casino @ Dania Beach and FPL. For more information on schedules performances and more, visit DaniaBeachArtsandSeafoodCelebration.com.
