2018 Riverfest Seafood Festival ~ Ormond Beach




The 10th Annual Riverfest Seafood Festival in Ormond Beach on Nov. 17 & 18. The Festival takes over Rockefeller Gardens and Fortunato Park for a jam-packed weekend of exciting activities for the whole family.



This year they 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.

Don’t want to leave the house on a football weekend? You can have the best of both worlds at our new outdoor pub hosted by Grind Gastropub and Kona Tiki Bar and featuring satellite TVs streaming the afternoon’s best games.

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 5K fun race on Sunday, a wildly popular kid’s fishing clinic, chef demonstrations, a kids’ zone, vendors and, of course, great music. 

This year the Riverfest runs Saturday, November 17 from 10 am – 6 pm and Sunday, November 18 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. Take a look at the website for parking locations.

Head down by the bridge for kids’ crafts and games, bungees, water balls, bounce houses and face painting. Become a pirate for the day as you mingle with pirate characters, climb on the great big pirate ship, and play a little Pirate’s Cove mini-golf. Of course, our popular Kid Fish fishing clinic will be back this year- sponsored by Fish Florida and Innovative Bookkeeping. Kids from 4-12 can become little anglers and take home one of our 300 free fishing poles while supplies last.

Like boats and water play?  Head to Fortunato Park for kayaks, pontoon boats, paddle boards and more.  Check out our boat and grown up “toy” displays.

If you want to burn some calories, you can start your day early on Sunday by being a part of the festival’s Rubber Duckie River Fun Run sponsored by the Southern Stone Event Group. Runners, walkers, families, and joggers of all types are welcome to participate with registration starting at 8am and the run starts at 9am.  Door prize drawings and awards for “best dressed” will be handed out on the main stage at the Riverfest Seafood Festival at 10:30 AM.  More information about registering for the race can be found at runsignup.com/rubberduck.
