What sets this seafood festival apart from others is that it runs through a 100% volunteer effort! All preparation, whether it be on the grounds or with the purchasing, cooking or serving of the various menu items is accomplished by volunteers of the community. We do not have any food vendors on site. All booths are run with volunteers: many booths are made up of family members, often times having several generations working along side one another. It is this complete volunteer effort that makes our festival unique. The total commitment of our community and all our volunteers makes the Grant Seafood Festival a time honored tradition unlike any other. We are proud of our community and our festival is a testament to that fact. All proceeds from the Grant Seafood Festival are put back into the community of Grant. Our projects include the Grant Seafood Festival scholarship fund, Grant Community Library, Grant Historical House and The Grant Community Center so come and enjoy some of the best seafood in Florida and help out the community of Grant at the same time! Please note our festival policy: NO DOGS (SERVICE DOGS MUST WEAR VEST OR COLLAR TO DISTINGUISH), NO COOLERS, NO OVERNIGHT PARKING.
