This Weekend’s Seafood Festival On The Santa Monica Pier Is Going To Be ‘Off The Hook’

By Malia Wooten

The 5th annual Off The Hook festival is making a splash this weekend!

If you love seafood, you’re not going to want to miss the seafood festival happening on the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday, September 14!

Off The Hook is a community ran fundraising event that celebrates Global Coastal Clean-Up Month and showcases the city’s best restaurants and chefs with dishes featuring their favorite underwater ingredients. So not only will guests get to chow down on incredible food, but they’ll also be supporting a great cause – and what feels better than grubbing for a purpose? (Answer: NOTHING!)

Enjoy a variety of incredible sample from local restaurants like The Lobster, FIG, and Sushi Roku alongside a number of wine tastings! In between bites, indulge in live music, games, oyster shucking competition, in addition to a handful of other underwater-inspired fun on the pier.

Plan on leaving one-of-a-kind foodie fundraising event with your heart (and stomach) full of joy knowing that you help contribute to raising awareness for the sustainable seafood movement!

Show your support for our beloved sea creatures, chefs, fisherman, and ecosystems, here!

Location: 200 Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica, CA 90401. See it on Google maps.
