"The Montauk Seafood Festival is the most anticipated seafood festival on the East End," shared Laura Mastandrea, Director, Montauk Seafood Festival. "Cast off for Montauk, the world's fishing capital, and reel in an amazing weekend with seafood, music and fun at the Montauk Seafood Festival."

The scrumptious two day affair will take place simultaneously under the tents at Montauk Marine Basin (426 West Lake Drive, Montauk) and across the street at Gosman's Lawn (543 West Lake Drive). The Festival will revolve around local fish and shellfish and local eateries.
