Where can you enjoy local seafood, browse through endless local vendors AND experience live music?  The Pompano Beach Seafood & Music Festival will let you do all of the above at the same time!  This year marks the 32nd annual return of the jam packed beach area event, sure to satisfy every craving for the very best South Florida locals have to offer.  In past years, the festival has covered every inch of the event grounds with local food vendors, craft vendors and topped it all off with live music throughout the three day event.   This year, the event kicks off on Friday, April 22th at 5PM and continues until Sunday, April 24th.

For many, however, it’s all about the music.  This year, more than ever, now with three stages of entertainment, a North Stage, South Stage and Central Stage.  Also new this year,  online ticketing! A 3-day pass will set you back a whopping $30 – probably the best deal in town for any major outdoor music festival.

2016 Featured Artist “The Guess Who”

Guess Who Pompano BeachThe name is none other than The Guess Who, a group that’s connected with the masses throughout a exultant hit parade spanning fourteen Top 40 hits, including “These Eyes,” “Clap For the Wolfman,” “Hand Me Down World,” “No Time,” “Star Baby” and “Share the Land.” Add in fellow classics and double sided singles like their #1 rock anthem “American Woman” and “No Sugar Tonight,” plus “Laughing” and “Undun,” and the Canadian bred stateside conquerors are amongst music’s most indelible treasures who are eternally etched within the very fabric of pop culture history.
