Are you familiar with ‘old’ Florida? Are you someone who can appreciate a different perspective on what’s important in life? Are you willing to spend a day amongst fishing boats, gear, fish houses and commercial fishermen? If any of this sounds intriguing, it might be a good idea for you to attend the annual Cortez Commercial Fishing Festival. This two-day event is held the third weekend of February every year.
In 1981 the first event drew 500 people to this small fishing village on Florida’s central west coast. They gathered to celebrate Florida’s commercial seafood industry – its past, its present and its future.
Since then the festival has grown from a one day event to two days with an average attendance of over 20,000. Considering that the entire village is less than 10 blocks, that’s a lot of visitors for this tiny community.
