Gulf Coast Events

Mark your calendar with these distinctive events along the Gulf Coast in all of our beach locations, including Fort Walton Beach, Destin, Scenic 30A, Panama City Beach, Navarre Beach, Pensacola Beach, Perdido Key, Orange Beach, Gulf Shores and Fairhope. While each area hosts their own events, the beach communities are so close to one another, and often intertwined, that visiting guests can participate and enjoy neighboring activities going on nearby with ease.

One-of-a-kind festivals and fairs celebrate so many different passions and interests. With fishing core to all of our communities, we commemorate several seafood festivals and fishing tournaments highlighting local fare and seasonal favorites. With the unique arts and culture of our exceptional areas, art expos, plein air artists, live theater, and wine and music festivals satisfy the creative souls. For the athletes, our climate is perfect for foot races, duathlons and triathlons, as well as fantastic beach volleyball tournaments.

Southern Vacation Rentals event guide can direct you to countless ways to explore these happenings, either to enhance your existing vacation or perhaps entice you to plan your next trip to the beach. We hope you will want to plan more than one.

New Year’s Eve Beach Ball Drop ~ Panama City Beach, Florida Events by Southern

It’s time to say goodbye to 2019, and welcome 2020! And what better way to do that than with a great family-friendly celebration? The New Year’s Eve Beach Ball Drop in Panama City Beach will take place on December 31. The streets of Pier Park are closed off to traffic as thousands of guests enjoy free live music, entertainment, and holiday cheer.

For those too excited to wait until midnight, or for those fans of New Year’s Eve who want to countdown the New Year twice, there are separate Beach Ball Drops at both 8 p.m. and midnight. In addition, bands perform in the hours leading up to 2020 for the gathering crowd. Gather around and anticipate the countdown to 2020 when a huge, glowing beach ball is lowered to signal the start of the New Year, and another great fireworks display.

Meanwhile, stay in one of Southern’s vacation rentals in Panama City Beach! Book one of our condos at Emerald Beach, a complex with upscale amenities and gorgeous views of the Gulf. Reserve your stay today!
