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.

The 23rd Annual Mullet Man Triathlon is back again on April 13! Push yourself to the limit on this scenic course through Perdido Key, Florida and Orange Beach, Alabama before a post-race party at the Flora-Bama Lounge.

The race starts at 7:30 a.m. and features a post-race party where great food and drinks will be provided. A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Leukemia Lymphoma Society, in memory of M. Lane Gilchrist, the late, popular Mayor of Gulf Breeze, FL.

The course begins with the swim portion for ¼ mile in the Gulf of Mexico. Then racers will transition into the bike segment for 8.5 miles. After that comes the 4.2 mile run, and you’ll end up back at Flora-Bama.

You can pick up your packet and register on April 12 or on the day of the event before the race begins. There are multiple divisions for men and women, as well as age groups. There is even a category for first timers! Registration is $90 plus $6.90 fee.
