Winn-Dixie served up a taste of the sea as presenting sponsor of the 33rdAnnual St. Augustine Lions Seafood Festival, held on March 21-23 at Francis Field in historic St. Augustine, Fla. Winn-Dixie returned as presenting sponsor for the popular festival.

This year, the Winn-Dixie Seafood Team offered more than 15 varieties of seafood to 33,000 attendees during the three-day event, including shrimp, salmon, crab bites, swai, grouper and many more. The Seafood Team worked tirelessly to keep the grills and fryers going as the crowd filled the Winn-Dixie tent, often with lines 30 people deep waiting to try the grocer’s samples throughout the weekend.

“Winn-Dixie is passionate about seafood and this festival is a great opportunity to connect with seafood fans in the community who share that passion with us,” said Doug Owenby, Bi-Lo Holding’s director of seafood. “Attendees enjoyed sampling the seafood variety we have in our stores and receiving cooking tips and recipes to prepare their favorites at home.”
