Seas the Day at the Long Island Seafood Festival

Long Island is known for delicious, fresh local seafood, especially in the summer!

That being said, the best time to enjoy delicious sea fare is quickly approaching. The Long Island Maritime Museum, located at 88 West Avenue in West Sayville, is hosting a Seafood Festival on Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25!

The festival is a cash only affair and will feature all the seafood your palate can enjoy as well as non-fish options for those who prefer land fare. There will also be children’s entertainment, face painting, games, sand art, and pirate entertainment, and an arts and crafts fair, so it's perfect for the whole family. Guests will also enjoy live music from rock, country, blues and tribute bands, and many exhibits by the event’s sponsors.

Sea you there!
