Rotary of Brandon 86 Hosts 30th Annual Seafood Festival

The Rotary Club of Brandon ’86 will hold its 30th Annual Brandon Seafood Festival, sponsored by Ferman Mazda, on Saturday, November 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Rotary’s Camp Florida, located at 1915 Camp Florida Rd. in Brandon.

The cost to attend is $25 per adult with a pre-purchased ticket or $30 per adult at the door. Children under 12 can enter for free with a paying adult and a donation of a can. The price includes unlimited seafood and drinks. The event will also have the ability to take orders this year to give everyone the opportunity to participate. All tickets can be ordered at the link provided below.

The Brandon Seafood Festival features southern fried fish, shrimp, hush puppies, coleslaw, hamburgers and hot dogs. There will be water, Gatorade and beer to drink. In addition to the all-you-can-eat buffet, families can enjoy music, games, inflatables, musical chairs for kids and more. Larry ‘Stretch’ Mott and DJ Crisolo will be on hand to entertain the crowd throughout the event with live music.

All proceeds from the event are donated to international and local charities including Outreach Clinic, ECHO, Everyday Blessings and Rotary’s Camp Florida. In 2019, the last year the event was held, the Rotary Club of Brandon ’86 raised $10,000 for these charities.

“The Rotary Club of Brandon ’86 has worked hard to make this a great event filled with fun and great food,” said Marlene Adkinson, Rotary Club of Brandon ’86 Public Image Chair.

“This is our flagship fundraising event that has raised funds for the needs of local charities for over 25 years,” added Adkinson.

For those who wish to become a sponsor, there are still many levels of sponsorship starting from just $100. For more information on becoming a sponsor or supplier, please contact Chad Norgard at [email protected] or 813-454-5072.

The Brandon ’86 Rotary Club is a service organization that meets every Friday at 8 a.m. at the Rotary Rivard-Simmons Event Center, located at 3007 S. Kings Avenue in Brandon. Guests are welcome.

“Rotary is synonymous with friendship, camaraderie and community. We work together to solve local community problems, provide humanitarian aid and promote goodwill and peace. Rotary is made up of local entrepreneurs who believe that mutual service is the best way to build successful businesses and societies,” Adkinson said.
