About Seafair ...

Celebrating its 47th anniversary this year!

We invite you to the 47th Annual Rockport-Fulton Seafair October 7-9 for food, fun and a celebration by the sea. Friday night headliner is the ever-popular Cory Morrow Band!
 
From delicious gumbo to the hilarious live crab races, this family-oriented event has become a favorite for all of South Texas. Don't miss the  expanded boat and outdoor show across the front entrance of the festival. You will be informed of the latest and greatest at their seated area near the boats with regularly scheduled presentations to educate and inform you. 
 
The Arts and Crafts and Seafair Market Vendors be showcasing more than 120 vendors!
 
Do you like adventure on the water? Sign up for the fun and crazy cardboard boat races. There is a competition for all ages. Not to be missed are  the hilarious Crab Races on a wooden race track, join in on the fun or just be a spectator!
 
We know... you wanted more gumbo! The Committee has approved the preparation of 225 gallons of gumbo which serves 7,200 cups of gumbo. So plan to visit the Gumbo Alley. Oh and did we mention the Gumbo Competition on Saturday. It's not to be missed! Feel free to taste to your heart's desire!
