Event Description:
The Annual Orange Beach Seafood Festival and Car Show will return to the Wharf on Saturday, February 25, 2023. The 31st annual event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature the festival's first-ever Makos on Main parade with students and a Mako Mudbug Mania crawfish-eating contest.

The festival is the major fundraising event for the Makos Academics Arts & Athletics Club (MAAAC), which directly benefits Orange Beach schools. Each year, more than 15,000 people attend the fundraising event.

The annual festival features a full day of delicious food, 100+ artists from throughout the South, and music for the whole family to enjoy on two stages. In addition, there is a large Kids' Zone with activities, and a huge car show - featuring antique, classic and hot rod vehicles all along Main Street.

There is no admission charge to the event and plenty of parking. Volunteers from Orange Beach schools help park cars and donations are accepted in support of our schools.

Typical food selections will include Fried Shrimp, Alligator, Frog Legs, Oysters, Fish, Seafood Etouffee, Seafood PoBoys, Crawfish Boil, Jambalaya, Shrimp Tacos, Red Beans and Rice, Seafood Gumbo, Crab Cakes, Crab Bites, Chicken on a Stick, Seafood Nachos and more. Snack items will include kettle corn, old-fashioned sodas, boiled peanuts and more. Each year, there are Pepsi stations, and MAAAC volunteers run beer tents, which started during the 2022 festival.

There's something for everyone from our Arts & Crafts booths - handmade jewelry, metal yard and garden art, beach-art inspired signs, homemade candles, glass bird feeders, nautical décor, 3D cut glass art, clothing and many other art, crafts and specialty items.
