Seafood lovers are urged to mark their calendar for the upcoming Bringing the Sea to The Springs Seafood Fest scheduled for Friday, May 13, 3 – 9 p.m.; Saturday, May 14, 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.; Sunday, May 15. noon – 5 p.m. at Thurman Springs Park, Home of Hardy Family Automotive Amphitheater, 4485 Pineview Drive, Powder Springs, GA 30127.
The City of Powder Springs has once again joined with Robin Roberts Promotions to present this free family event designed to bring the community together through tasty food, juried arts and crafts, fellowship, and fun. “We are excited to produce this fantastic festival a second year for the citizens of Powder Springs and the metro Atlanta area,” said Roberts. “We look forward to the community coming out for this weekend of food, live entertainment, crafts and fun.”
Presented by Roberts in partnership with the City of Powder Springs, the inaugural festival in 2021 welcomed over 10,000 attendees.
“I think it really, to be truthful, put us on the map because it was so well attended, the food was good, and I’m hearing people from outside of the city in other places talking about ‘the Seafood Festival in Powder Springs,’ so that’s how big of an impact it was and how word spread,” said City of Powder Springs Mayor Al Thurman. “People are excited that it is coming back again, and it’s going to be a signature event for Powder Springs going forward.”
