34th Annual Destin Seafood Festival October 5th – 7th, 2012
Welcome to the 34th annual Destin Seafood Festival. The Seafood Festival is hosted along the beautiful Destin Harbor and the Harbor Boardwalk. With the action of the Destin Fishing Rodeo right in the heart of the Festival, there is lots of excitement along the docks. This is so much more than a festival to us- It is a tribute to the rich history of the Destin Harbor and the Fishing community.. The Festival was started by the Destin Charter Boat Association’s Women’s Auxiliary in 1978 as a fund raiser for the local fishing fleet and to help bring people to Destin in the fall. Today the Destin Charter Boat Association has teamed up with the local business community and Destin Restaurants and Seafood Markets to bring this much loved community tradition to the community.
Come join us along the Boardwalk for a great weekend of seafood, live music, arts & crafts and family fun. More than 60,000 locals and visitors are expected to attend and we are ecstatic to host this event. This three day festival will be full of arts, crafts, music, food, entertainment, fireworks, and excitement for all! It will showcase the Best that Destin has to offer on the Harbor. Stroll along the Harbor Board Walk from one end to the other with over a mile of Festival on the water showcasing Destin’s Fishing Fleet, Harbor Restaurants & Bars and breath taking sunsets!
The 2012 Festival brings Ocean Reef Vacation Resorts on board as our Official Accommodation’s Sponsor of the Destin Seafood Festival. The Ocean Reef Crew represents the “Best” of the Emerald Coast and we are happy to have them onboard!
