DeSoto Seafood Festival 2019

Posted on March 28, 2019 at 2:40 PM by Penny Johnston

DeSoto Seafood Festival has evolved over the 30 years to become the largest regional festival in Manatee County. The Festival began as the River Fest on downtown Bradenton’s “Sandlot” at Rossi Waterfront Park and was only open on Saturday and Sunday.
