Destin Seafood FestivalPosted on 10/01/14
It’s time for the 36th annual Destin Seafood Festival! If you own a home in Destin or nearby Fort Walton Beach, get out and celebrate the foundation of this little slice of paradise – great food and amazing fishing!
The Destin Seafood Festival will take place October 3-5 and include music, kid’s activities, and of course, great food. The three day event will take place along the docks of Destin, from HarborWalk Village down to AJ’s Seafood, where you can also watch the daily weigh-ins of the Destin Fishing Rodeo.
Live music is a huge part of this event. Local and regional musicians will be performing on three stages at HarborWalk, as well as in local restaurants along the harbor. Bands you should be sure to check out include Heritage, Chronic Jester and Boukou Groove. If you will be bringing the kids to this free festival, be sure to take them down to the fun zone at Heron Harbor, the East Pass Marina or HarborWalk to enjoy festive events and activities.
Now, about the food. Expect seafood cooked in a variety of ways including fried, grilled and blackened. Regional cooks travel to be a part of this event, so you will experience new flavors in addition to some of your favorites from local restaurants. Be sure to try as much as you can – it’s all guaranteed to be delicious! We hope to see everyone out along the docks of Destin this weekend.
