It’s that time again!! Time to prepare for the 38th Annual Destin Seafood Festival!
Each year that the festival continues the layout along the beautiful Destin Harbor Boardwalk we continue to grow. We see an increase in sponsors, vendors, and guests each year. The Destin Seafood Festival is hosted along the Destin Harbor and is free to the public! Without the gracious property hosts allowing us the use of their properties it would not be possible. Allowing a festival that hosts almost 70,000 guests in three days, use of beautiful water front land and asking their full time tenants to accommodate the festival, is nothing short of amazing. In addition to the Destin Charter Boat Association that has kept this tradition alive, I would like to thank and acknowledge your true "hosts" of the festival, the property owners.
- Howard Group- Heron Harbor
- Destin Fishing Fleet Marina
- Johnny O’Quigley’s Ale House
- Olan Marler Fishing & Dolphin Cruises
- Perry Properties
- Dewey Destin
- East Pass Marina
- Galati Yacht Sales
- Tim and Wendy Krieg
- AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar
- HarborWalk Village/Emerald Grande
In addition to our property hosts I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the significance of our sponsors, volunteers and vendors that provide our guests with a quality experience. Without the hard work, contribution and partnership of quality sponsors, vendors and volunteers the festival wouldn't continue to thrive. Our sincere thanks to each of you.
As the festival grows it continues to be our goal to offer quality vendors and food selections. We will be reaching out to our local talent and restaurants to sustain relationships and seek new ways to showcase Destin, and all it has to offer. Please keep an eye on the website and our Facebook page, this is how we keep you posted of music selections, new events, sponsorships, vendors, children’s activities and so much more!
Here’s to making the 38th Annual Destin Seafood Festival a success for all. Let’s maintain the enthusiasm!!
Best Wishes -
