Cortez is the oldest working fishing village in Florida. The Festival is in support of the Manatee Chapter of Fishing for Freedom.

Fortunately  it is a hop, skip and a jump over the Cortez Bridge from Anna Maria Island – lucky us!

This means the Stone Crab never travel by land – from the sea to your plate!
