Each year the festival offers a diverse menu of foods cooked fresh on site. Seafood items are prepared using only the freshest local and sustainable ocean resources from the Florida Gulf Coast. Meat and vegetarian offerings also are on the menu, along with a variety of side dishes and of course – tantalizing desserts! Alcoholic, non-alcoholic and fruit drinks are available along with a selection of sodas and bottled water. In the breaks between performances, explore shopping in a marketplace of fine arts, crafts, and select fine products and food items.
