SeaGrapes Wine and Food Update


The Florida Aquarium has made the decision not to host the 2020 SeaGrapes on Saturday, May 30th. While this is unfortunate, we do believe it is the necessary decision. With social distancing practices changing rapidly, we simply do not know when 1000 people will be gathering to toast together. We look forward to when we can celebrate and clink glasses with you in honor of The Florida Aquarium.
