Emerald Coast Seafood Festival: Destin
Serving fresh seafood is a daily privilege on the Emerald Coast. The Gulf of Mexico provides an ocean full of delicacies just waiting to be served at your favorite beach town eatery. That's why festivals honoring local seafood restaurants and chefs are hosted from Pensacola to Panama City Beach. Our next stop in the Emerald Coast Seafood Festival Series.....Destin!
The 35th Annual Destin Seafood Festival is held on October 4th through the 6th. Stroll through the beautiful HarborWalk Boardwalk as samples of the freshest seafood in the area are served up for miles and miles! The docks of Destin's Famous Fishing Fleet invite you to check out the days' big catch. You can literally watch as your next meal is taken from the boat to the scale, weighed, cleaned, and filleted to perfection.
The Destin Seafood Festival is a locals' tradition and vacationers' treasure, drawing over 60,000 ocean lovers to its grounds each year. You will experience three days of arts, crafts, live music, and entertainment. Imagine six stages all 'rockin' with your favorite local artists such as: Heritage, Jones & Company, Chris Alvarado, Owsley Brothers, Red 423, and Cadillac Willy.
It's fun for the whole family with three Kid Zones offering excitement to pre-teens as well as toddlers! From rock climbing walls and skin boarding workshops to pony rides and petty zoos, Destin Seafood Festival has all ages covered. Top that off with explosive fireworks over the gulf and you have a celebration that only HarborWalk can provide!
