Founded in 2008
The Crystal River Stone Crab Jam is just a good old-fashioned all-day party thrown for the fun of it ... organized by, and benefitting the Kings Bay Rotary Charitable Foundation. This annual street festival features fresh stone crabs, craft beer and wine, and a host of other culinary delights that are sure to please seafood lovers.

In addition to the food, there is continuous live music playing on several stages throughout the downtown Crystal River festival area - made even more attractive in 2020 with the addition of the Kings Bay River Walk.

The Stone Crab Jam charges a nominal adult admission fee, and kids are free. The fees collected go to support this totally non-profit event that is typically attended by close to ten thousand people. Numerous arts and crafts booths can also be found for those who like to browse for unique gifts.
