Cortez 29th Annual Fishing Festival this weekend

Cortez 29th Annual Fishing Festival

February 19 – 20, Live entertainment, fantastic food

Cortez may be the last of something once commonplace in yesterday’s Florida—a coastal commercial fishing town. Almost everything in Cortez has some relationship to seafood, fishing, or boats. Signs along Cortez Road advertise smoked mullet, fresh shrimp, outboard motor repair, bait, and fishing charters. Way back when, locals used to call this area “the Kitchen” because of the abundance of seafood and shellfish caught in these waters.
