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.

Catch the 4th of July Fireworks on Pensacola Beach

Planning to visit the beach for Independence Day? Then stay at one of our Portofino vacation condos for the best views of the 4th of July Fireworks on Pensacola Beach! The fireworks will begin at 8:30 PM, over the Santa Rosa Sound. Portofino’s private boardwalk on the north end of the resort is the perfect spot to catch this stunning fireworks display. Or, walk down from your condo to Quietwater Beach, where you can relax in the sand while watching fireworks up close.

Meanwhile, check out Portofino 1-1806, a two-bedroom condo with room for four guests. The private balcony offers views of the Santa Rosa Sound from 18 stories up, so you would have the perfect view of the fireworks from this angle! Plus, enjoy plush accommodations and luxury amenities including a state of the art gym, indoor and outdoor pools, and a spa. With beach access to top it off, it’s no surprise Portofino is one of the most popular resorts on Pensacola Beach.
