The St. Marks Stone Crab Festival has been an annual event since 1997. We know fall has arrived when our fishermen start hauling in the Stone Crabs. It is a celebration of the stone crab season opening in October. Originally started by Stan West and Dave Vailancourt, owners of the Riverside Cafe’, in recent years the event has grown into a community wide project with many local volunteers and sponsors.
Today the festival hosts thousands of visitors and provides a venue for local musicians and artisans. In addition to the great food and music, attractions include a parade, children’s activities, educational displays, and dozens of vendors. The main event is, of course, Stone Crab. Come and enjoy the day with us.
The St. Marks Stone Crab Festival, Inc. is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) operated by a group of volunteers. Proceeds from the festival are given as charitable donations to organizations in St. Marks and the surrounding area.
