Taste of the Beach ~ Pensacola Beach, Florida Events by Southern
Get ready for Pensacola Beach’s biggest culinary event of the year! The 12th Annual Taste of the Beach is a two-day festival filled with fine dining, celebrity chef demonstrations, and more.
On Friday, October 18, a special VIP dinner prepared by five Pensacola Beach chefs will take place at 6 PM at the Hilton Pensacola Beach Hotel.
Then, head down to Casino Beach to kick off the event on Saturday! There will be cook offs, cooking demonstrations, a chef challenge, and sample tastings. Entry is free for Saturday’s day-long festival, with more than a dozen beach restaurants showcasing their signature dishes for $5 each.
Meanwhile, watch the crab races at 4 PM and experience a beer tasting at 5 PM. Festival-goers can sample nearly 24 different beers from six different breweries. Wristbands are only $15 each! Later at 7 PM, dance the night away with a live concert from local musicians.
