BOSTON, MA – The 9th Annual Boston Seafood Festival is proud to announce its 2022 schedule of events, which includes music, education, and cultural performances throughout the day. Scheduled for Sunday, August 7th, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Boston’s historic Fish Pier, the Boston Seafood Festival features children’s activities, chef demonstrations, and exhibits on the seafood industry and the sustainable practices it employs.

More than seafood, the festival educates the public about the fishing industry and the people, practices, and innovations which power one of the epicenters for the region’s fisheries.  Children can enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment including live music, roving pirates, and other characters from under the sea. A portion of all proceeds support the Boston Fisheries Foundation, a non-profit organization created to preserve, sustain, and share the region’s seafood and maritime heritage. 

The Boston Seafood Festival is supported by its event sponsors, including Marcus Partners, Boston Sword and Tuna, John Nagle Co., Harpoon, The Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries, Win Waste Innovations, Alta, and more.
