On Saturday,October 25, 2014, the St. Marks Stone Crab Festival will be held in the center of historic St. Marks (20 miles due south of Tallahassee). The annual event will feature a menu of stone crabs (of course) plus fresh local seafood, barbeque, hamburgers, hot dogs, a day of live music and entertainment (live bands will be appearing on the Florida Lottery Showvan), arts, crafts,and novelties. It will be a fun day that the entire family can enjoy and the event is free and open to the public. NO AMIMALS PERMITED. Event hours are 10:00AM to 6:00PM.

The stone crabs collected in the waters of the gulf near St. Marks are shipped all across the eastern United States from this small coastal fishing village. In fact, some of the finest restaurants in the country feature stone crabs harvested and shipped from St. Marks.

A portion of the proceeds from this year’s festival will go to the St. Marks Waterfronts Florida Partnership and the St. Marks Volunteer Fire Department, two local organizations dedicated to the preservation and protection of the unique St. Marks area, and other non-profit service organizations.

St. Marks is located at the confluence of the St. Marks and Wakulla Rivers and is surrounded by the natural beauty of the St.Marks National Wildlife Refuge. This year we have partnered with the St. Marks Monarch Festival at the refuge and the San Marcos de Apalache Fort Archaeology Day.

COME MAKE IT A DAY FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
