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.

2019 Blue Angels Airshow ~ Pensacola Beach, FL Events by Southern

Stay at one of our vacation homes or condos on Pensacola Beach to get the best views of the 2019 Blue Angels Air Show! The Blue Angels are the U.S. Navy’s flight demonstration squadron aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola. Practice begins on Wednesday, July 10th and rounds out on Saturday, July 13th. The Blue Angels will be joined by civilian acts including Fat Albert, Julian MacQueen, Veterans Flight, Kevin Coleman, Gary Ward, Skip Stewart, and Redline. This is the premier event on Pensacola Beach during summertime. Trust us, you don’t want to miss this!

On Wednesday, July 11th, head down to Casino Beach with coffee and bagel in hand for Breakfast with the Blues. The squadron will fly overhead around 8 AM, so getting a good spot in the sand is crucial! The next day, July 12th, catch the Blues’ practice flight demonstration at 2 PM. Imagine, you’re simply lying in the sand with a great beach read when the Blue Angels fly overhead! It’s an incredibly thrilling experience.

Then, catch the dress rehearsal on Friday, July 12th with civilian acts beginning at noon. Don’t leave as soon as the show is over, though – the Blues will appear in the skies at 2 PM.

Finally, the big show is here! The big 2018 Blue Angels Air Show begins at noon on Saturday, July 13th, with the Blue Angels flying at 2 PM. We recommend getting to the beach as early as possible – some Blue Angels enthusiasts get to the beach as early as 6 AM! Fortunately, many of our Pensacola Beach vacation rentals are within walking distance of Casino Beach. That means you won’t have to worry about parking! This is certainly an all-day event, so bring lots of water and sunscreen!
