The 35th Annual Muster and Music Festival

November 7, 2020

Come celebrate the 35th Annual Muster and Music Festival at the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, Florida!

Due to COVID-related restrictions, all Muster activities will take place on Saturday, November 7. There are no activities scheduled for Friday, November 6.

To help maximize social distancing, we are offering two identical programs on Saturday. All festivities will take place outdoors on Navy SEAL Museum property. Please bring your own lawn chairs and join us on the Museum’s north lawn for keynote addresses from the MK-V Assault Craft; keynotes and demonstrations will be the same at both presentations on Museum property.

Food trucks will be onsite all day Saturday for guests to purchase food, and beverages will be available for purchase from the mobile bar.
