The Sebastian Clambake, billed as a “Lagoon Festival,” celebrated on November 7-9 the area’s special way of life along the Indian River, which has been the life-blood of the community from the beginning. The lagoon has provided its citizens and visitors with recreation, tranquil beauty, and food for generations. The festival is known for the quality of its food, with most of the menu featuring its namesake – clams prepared in a variety of ways. The Sebastian Clambake Foundation, a nonprofit corporation, organizes the festival and proceeds are dedicated to local non-profit capital projects. This year’s festival with a theme of “May the Clam Be with You” was a high success contributing to proceeds of over $500,000 being distributed to these projects.
