In 1993 a group of local Rotarians started thinking about an event that would raise funds to use for projects and grants to give back to community organizations.  The plans were to provide great meals, great music, lots of fun.


The Neenah Rotary Club and Menasha Rotary Club hosted the first Seafood Fest in the summer of 1994.  Much planning, preparation and work went into the first Seafood Fest.  Year one proved to be a tough year with torrential rains and very little profit being made.  With the first year completed many changes were made how the event was setup and organized, Year two proved to be a wonderful success as large crowds came and the community started to embrace Seafood Fest.


Seafood Fest has been a popular destination for many since it’s humble beginnings in 1994.  The event has been going every year since then.  Seafood Fest has allowed the clubs to give over $500,000 back to the community.


We give a big thanks to all that volunteer any amount of the thousands of hours it takes to run the event !


Since 2010 the Fox Cities Morning Rotary Club has joined with the other 2 clubs in hosting Seafood Fest.


Please join us in September and see why so many people enjoy and plan on coming to Seafood Fest every year!
