The 2018 North Carolina Aquaculture Development Conference (NCADC) is excited to announce the culminating event of the conference, the Cultured Seafood Festival, will be held at the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center on March 9, 2018. This all-you-care-to-eat festival is open to the public from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will feature a variety of aquacultured seafood. Aquaculture is the business of farming aquatic plants and animals, and North Carolina prides itself as being one of the most respected aquaculture producing states in the U.S.

Designed to educate the public about N.C. aquaculture products, the Cultured Seafood Festival offers a fun, family-friendly environment with an abundance of local food crafted by Chef James “Smoke” Boyd, one of New Bern’s top chefs and owner of The Flame Catering and Banquet Center.

The festival will include variations of our state’s finest aquacultured seafood including: North Carolina steamed oysters (with all the “fixins”), local-made crab cakes, clams, tilapia, hybrid striped bass, crawfish and catfish, among others. We are also including a “low country crawfish boil” and a taste-testing of N.C. raw oysters direct from our own coastal waters. Local craft beer will also be available. Tickets are $50 per person and are available online.

When: Friday, March 9, 2018, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Where: New Bern Riverfront Convention Center
203 S. Front Street, New Bern, N.C. 28560
