The Fresh District is proud to present the inaugural Georgia Seafood Festival!
The festival will bring together the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of the Georgia Coastal Seafood scene. Event attendees will have the opportunity to learn how important the seafood industry is to all Georgians, sample a wide variety of fresh fish right off the boat cooked in a myriad of styles, with a focus on Wild Shrimp from Georgia. Attendees will also participate in fun and games related to Georgia’s agriculture and fishing industries, while listening to bands from Georgia’s coastal cities. Patrons will also have the opportunity to learn about the wide variety of vacation destinations on our Georgia coast, sample fresh produce from all over Georgia, drink eclectic Georgia Coastal cocktails, and watch Atlanta’s top amateur and professional chefs compete for a coveted slot in the Annual World Food Championships!
The Fresh District is extremely proud to announce that the in-game Host for the Atlanta Braves, Mark Owens, will be the official MC for the 2019 Georgia Seafood Festival!
