Get ready to take a “foodcation” because it’s fall food festival season!  The next few months will be devoted to celebrating the culinary creations of the wonderful chefs and restaurants of Pensacola. In addition to the food festivals, fall is a great time to take a trip to the Gulf Coast. There are fewer crowds, the weather is a little cooler, and we have incredible fall specials offering up to 20% off vacation homes in Pensacola Beach now through October!

The season kicks off on September 23rd with the 9th Annual Taste of the Beach. The two-day festival begins with a Pensacola Beach Tastemakers VIP Dinner on Friday evening. Tickets are $65 and include a craft cocktail reception followed by a five-course meal prepared during an on-stage demonstration and presented by four local chefs. On Saturday, September 24th, the festival moves to the Gulfside Pavilion at Casino Beach and becomes an awesome family-friendly event. Twenty-two restaurants offer their most popular dishes for a flat $5 each. Yes, $5! Live cooking demos, competitions, and a kid’s area will keep you entertained until the awesome 80s band, The Molly Ringwalds, take the main stage at 7pm.

After the Taste of Pensacola Beach, the culinary celebrations continue with the Pensacola Seafood Festival from September 30th-October 2nd, and the Pensacola Beach Art and Wine Festival on October 23rd. You should just stay the whole month, right? Reserve your vacation home in Pensacola Beach now through October and you can receive 20% off!
