The Atlantic City Seafood Festival @ The Showboat
Sep 9 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm
The Atlantic City Seafood Festival @ The Showboat | Atlantic City | New Jersey | United States

The Atlantic City Seafood Festival is moving to the boardwalk! This year’s festival will be held outdoors, adjacent to The Showboat Atlantic City, September 9-10, just steps away from the famous Atlantic City boardwalk and beach! The Atlantic City Seafood Festival is a great opportunity for foodies and food seekers to meet some of Atlantic City’s most unique chefs and restaurateurs all while eating their tasty creations.

Programming for the 2017 Atlantic City Seafood Festival includes children’s activities and amusements, live sand sculpting / kids sand sculpting area, cooking demos, live music, local art and artists, wine seminars and tastings, The Great Brews of NJ Tasting Tent, a crab cake eating competition and the chowder cook-off benefiting the Community Food Bank of New Jersey.

September is National Hunger Action Month, and once again the Atlantic City Seafood Festival will support the Community Food Bank of New Jersey by donating a portion of the proceeds to this important organization. Hunger Action Month, a nationwide Feeding America campaign, challenges the public to take action by promoting ways for individuals everywhere to get involved with the movement to help solve the issue of hunger in America! Also, back by popular demand, the 2017 Chowder Cook-Off will benefit the Community Food Bank as well! In 2016, the Atlantic City Seafood Festival raised close to $10,000 for the Community Food Bank of New Jersey (which is the equivalent of $100,000 in food distributed throughout the Garden State)! This year, festival organizers plan to increase that donation with the support of participating restaurants and festival attendees!

Finally, the 2nd Annual Pet Costume Contest returns to the Atlantic City Seafood Festival this year. The contest benefits the Humane Society of Atlantic County. Festival attendees are encouraged to dress their pets in their Sunday best and show off their four-legged friends! The contest will take place on Sunday, September 10th and will begin promptly at 3:00pm. Pets will be judged on the following categories: Most Original, Best Sea Creature Theme, People’s Choice, Owner/Pet look-alike. To enter the Pet Costume Contest, sign-up at the Humane Society Booth for a $5 minimum donation. All proceeds will benefit The Humane Society of Atlantic County.
