If you like reggae music, seafood-based dishes and supporting Tampa Bay small businesses, then this weekend’s Reggae Seafood Festival is your one-stop destination.

This multifaceted festival runs from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on March 26, at Clearwater’s Walter C. Campbell Park at 801 N Martin Luther King Jr Ave.

There is no price for admission and no ticket required to attend.

There’s a pretty wide variety of programming and activities to choose from at this weekend’s festival, as it's poster states there will be spoken word and poetry performances, bounce houses, foodie competitions, line dancing, a Spade tournament, and adult games (whatever that means.)

Food trucks and local restaurants will be vending, although there is no information about what dishes they’ll be serving at the upcoming Reggae Seafood Festival. Food vendors that usually work Saturday Morning Shoppe events include SeafoodGodRob, Tara’s Kitchen, and Mono’s Cups—among many, many others. There is no official lineup for the festival's live performances either.

Saturday Morning Shoppe hosts many different markets and pop-ups throughout Tampa Bay—with a strong focus on supporting minority and women-owned businesses. Founder of Saturday Morning Shoppe Renee Edwards hosted her first market in Clearwater just last month, and was met with great reception from the community.

"Our first event in Clearwater went so well in February with hundreds of people coming out and having a great time, that we are incredibly excited to bring our second event to North Greenwood," Edwards said in a press release.
