MIAMI - The Coconut Grove Seafood Festival will be raising money this year to help people in the Florida Keys following Hurricane Irma.

Festival organizers said they felt a need to support the Keys economy and lifestyle, as the festival and South Florida seafood lovers rely on fresh fish from the Keys.

The festival has once again partnered with the Celebration of the Sea Foundation, and this year, they will be raising money for people in need in the Keys via KeysStrong.org.

A portion of all ticket sales for the seafood festival will be donated to the Keys relief effort.

This year's event features more than 35 seafood vendors serving up favorites such as conch, lobster, grouper and stone crabs.

Organizers urge attendees to stock up on fresh seafood at the Casablanca Fish Market, watch cooking demonstrations at The Kitchen Lab and enjoy live music at The Shipwreck Bar & Lounge.

The Coconut Grove Seafood Festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Miami Marine Stadium in Key Biscayne.

General admission is $15, and a two-day ticket is $25.

People may also purchase a family one-day pass for two adults and unlimited children for $30.
Children under 10 are free.
