Join The Florida Aquarium for its 17th annual SeaGrapes Wine & Food Festival fundraising event presented by Amalie Oil on Saturday, April 28 from 8-11 p.m. Immerse yourself in a wine and food festival unlike any other.

Enjoy fantastic wine and sample delicious food while strolling among more than 7,000 animals and plants, all while supporting a good cause. There will be 50+ types of wine available to sample and more than 20 different local restaurant partners in attendance. The festive atmosphere will be complemented by a variety of live entertainment throughout the Aquarium.

“We are very excited to be hosting SeaGrapes, our annual fundraising event, again this year. We have so many great wines and food from local restaurants for our guest to enjoy while taking in the Aquarium atmosphere at night. It truly is a special experience and the best part is each ticket sold goes toward supporting the Aquarium’s mission of entertaining, educating and inspiring stewardship of our natural environment. This is not only a fun event, but it supports a good cause as well,” said The Florida Aquarium’s Communications Manager Kaitlyn Fusco.

Dress is cocktail attire. VIP ticketholder entry will begin at 7 p.m. for early access to the food and drinks, as well as a special VIP area with exclusive food and drink options.
