The Florida Seafood Festival is Nov 1 & 2, 2013.

This year the festival turns up the heat, marking its 50th anniversary with a two-day celebration of fresh seafood, music, and art. The annual festival draws thousands of visitors to the historic town of Apalachicola on Florida's Forgotten Coast. The event will be held at the mouth of the Apalachicola River under the shady oaks of Apalachicola's Battery Park on November 1-2, 2013. Some of the notable events include oyster eating and oyster shucking contests, blue crab races, cooking contests, a downtown parade, 5k Redfish Run, live music entertainment, and the Blessing of the Fleet.

This year’s headline entertainment features Kellie Pickler, an American country music artist and television personality. Kellie takes the stage on Saturday night at 8 p.m. on the main stage in the park, followed with a fireworks display to end the festival.
