Cortez Commercial Fishing Festival
This year brings the 2014 Cortez Commercial Fishing Festival. The festival has become a local tradition and rightly so with the delicious fresh seafood and old Florida atmosphere it brings. Growing from an attendance of 500 to over 25,000 since its inception the Cortez Fishing Festival is something that we look forward to each year.
Although the lineup has not been released yet at the time of this posting you can expect many great artists to perform at the event. It’s likely you’ll catch some of the previous year’s performers returning for the fun and food.
Parking and Price Information
In previous years admission has been $3, and will likely be close to the same this year.
Free parking can be found at Coquina Beach on Anna Maria Island, and then catch a ride on the free trolley to the event. If you’re coming from off the island you can find parking at G.T. Bray park and then catch a ride on the bus for $2. There is also parking just east of the village off of Cortez Road, however this parking lot tends to fill up quickly so don’t rely on a spot being available unless you are attending very early or late in the day.
