Cortez Commercial Fishing Festival

4415 119th Street West
Cortez, FL 34215

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 20,000. Considering that the entire village is less than 10 blocks, that’s a lot of visitors for the community.
