THINGS TO DO: 2023 Cortez Commercial Fishing Festival

February 18-19, 2023

10 am - 6 pm

"Cortez Kind Over 100 Years of Commercial Fishing"

Are you familiar with 'old' Florida? 
Are you someone who can appreciate a different perspective on what’s important in life? Are you willing to spend a day amongst fishing boats, gear, fish houses and commercial fishermen? If any of this sounds intriguing, it might be a good idea for you to join us at the annual Cortez Commercial Fishing Festival. This two-day event is held in February every year.

Money raised goes to support local conservation efforts to keep the fishing village going. Organizers have been preparing for this festival for weeks. It's led by volunteers from the Florida Institute for Saltwater Heritage (FISH).

There will be great live music, nautical arts and crafts, children’s activities, environmental exhibits, and more seafood than imaginable. You’ll also want to purchase one of the festival t-shirts which are designed each year reflecting a commercial fishing theme.

Admission - $5.00 for Adults - Children 12 under free

For more information about the history of the festival, directions, parking and the music line-up, visit the FISH website.
