Event description

Description

The people of the South Jersey area spoke and we listened! In 2018, The Atlantic City Seafood Festival is returning to its home on Bader Field where the acres of uninhabited, water front land will once again be transformed into a seafood lover’s dream! With the famous Atlantic City skyline as its backdrop, The Atlantic City Seafood Festival will feature over 40 different local and regional seafood restaurants and vendors who will be serving up their favorite seafaring dishes.

With the majority of the restaurants attending being brick and mortar Atlantic City restaurants, The Atlantic City Seafood festival will continue to give attendees the opportunity to experience this seaside city as a culinary destination. It is also a great opportunity for foodies and food seekers to meet some of Atlantic City’s most unique chefs and restaurateurs all while eating their tasty creations.From clams to calamari, oysters to ahi, and even alligator too, The Atlantic City Seafood Festival has it all!

The goal of the Festival producers is to give event attendees a reason to spend the day in Atlantic City by highlighting the fantastic dining options this coastal town has to offer. Whether it’s trying the vast selection of local restaurants, sipping Jersey made craft beers and wines, cooking with local chefs, shopping unique vendors, playing in the sand, feeding butterflies, you will find yourself immersed in The Atlantic City Seafood Festival and all that it has to offer.

The Atlantic City Seafood Festival happens to fall every year during National Hunger Action Month, a nationwide Feeding America campaign that challenges the public to take action to help solve the issue of hunger in America! In honor of National Hunger Action Month, The Atlantic City Seafood Festival will once again support the Community Food Bank of New Jersey by donating a portion of the proceeds to this important organization as well back by popular demand, is the 2018 Chowder Cook-Off! This cook-off will allow participants to sample chowder from some of the finest restaurants Atlantic City has to offer as they stroll the festival and decide what they are going to feast on! In 2017, through the Chowder Cook-Off, the Festival and restaurants, we were able to raise close to $16,000 which is the equivalent of $160,000 in food distributed throughout the Garden State! This year we plan on increasing that donation with the support of our participating restaurants and festival attendees, one cup of chowder at a time!

Returning to the Seafood Festival is the3rdAnnual Pet Costume Contest benefiting the Humane Society of Atlantic County and their loveable residents! Festival goers are encouraged to dress their pets in their Sunday’s Best and show-off their four-legged friends!
