WHY THE BEST BOOTH AT THE POMPANO BEACH SEAFOOD FESTIVAL JUST GOT BETTER
BY Jeff Levine, POMPANO BEACH NEWS COLUMNIST
Without a doubt, just about everyone’s favorite booth at the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival is Papa’s Raw Bar.
So, how do you make the best booth at the renowned Pompano Beach event even better? How about adding Pompano Beach’s top local brewery? 26 Degree Brewing Company will now be on site to serve up the brews.
Located in the same tent as Papa’s Raw Bar, 26 Degree Brewing Company will be serving four draft beers: IPA1A, Tri-County Common, Pompano Pale Ale, and Captain Ron Hefeweizen
The 26 Degree Brewing company opened in 2014 at their location at 2600 E Atlantic Blvd, across the street from Publix. They’ve been attracting big crowds ever since.
Papa’s Raw Bar and their sister (parent) restaurant Papa Huey’s Seafood World have been serving fresh seafood since 1976 from their Lighthouse Point location on Federal Highway. They are considered to be one of the best seafood restaurants in the Pompano Beach-Lighthouse Point area.

Here are more details about this year’s Pompano Beach Seafood Festival
The 35th annual Pompano Beach Seafood Festival will help kick off summer with a ton of seafood, arts, crafts, vendors and live music. Due to construction by the pier, this year’s festival will take place at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater and Community Park instead of the usual beach location.
There will be three stages set up for the festival, with the Pompano Beach Amphitheater hosting the headlining acts. Admission to the amphitheater is free with your event ticket purchase.
This year’s musical lineup included The Guess Who (American Woman, No Time), Foghat (Slow Ride, Fool for the City), Inner Circle (Sweat, Bad Boys- the theme from the TV show Cops) and Zach Deputy. Deputy describes his music as “island-infused drum n’ bass gospel ninja soul.”
Zach Deputy will headline Friday night’s festival (8:45 pm). Foghat (5:45 pm), and the Guess Who (8:15 pm) will perform on Saturday. Inner Circle will close out the three day Pompano Beach event on Sunday evening (6:15 pm).
