Guy Harvey Blazing Mako Festival | Islamorada Beachfront Resort

Islamorada is known for great sunsets, beaches, and amazing fishing. In June, come hang with us at the Blazing Mako Tournament and Festival. The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation is hosting the Outpost Inaugural Blazing Mako Tournament and Festival, which is a not-for-profit fishing tournament and ocean conservation educational festival. This four-day event will feature innovative art exhibits using recycled materials, conservation educational displays and local vendors, all in the "Conchservation" Village to highlight trash to treasure art exhibits and conservation in the Florida Keys. Other than a great educational cause, what would a festival be without food and fun? There will be live bands like the Shane Duncan band, Billy Davidson band, and the Steve Webb band to name a few performing, on the NSU Mako stage. As well as delicious food vendors and rum tastings including Black Coral Rum, Papas Pilar, and Tiburon Rum in the rum village! Make reservations at the Bull and Oyster Roast for grilled and roasted oysters and BBQ! Throughout the fun-filled weekend there will be trivia events, paddleboard races, beach and water sport competitions, such as the Kids Pier Fishing Tournament. For novice fishermen, there will be fishing seminars, learning and science exhibits, and even a silent auction. We recommend staying around until the highlight of the festival, which is the burning of a 15-foot mako shark sculpture! Proceeds from the blazing mako will benefit Nova Southeastern University Tournament Scholarship. This event will also help raise money marine sciences scholarships. This weekend will not only be packed to the brim with fun events but one full of memories that will last a lifetime. After all the festivities, come back home to our Islamorada resort to rest and feel refreshed.

Address: 82100 Overseas Hwy, Islamorada
