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.

Pensacola Beach Songwriters’ Festival ~ Pensacola Beach, Florida Events by Southern

Join us for this year’s Annual Pensacola Songwriter’s Festival! Spend a long weekend enjoying a variety of talents with over 100 songwriters. Additionally, meet the songwriters who create the songs and discover the stories behind the music. Set against the backdrop of beautiful Pensacola Beach, these artists play along 15 different venues.

Not only does the festival provide incredible entertainment in intimate settings, but also has a focused mission. Music education is an important part of their festival. In addition to supporting this art in the schools, the festival also supports the Northwest Guardian Ad Litem program. By supporting the Songwriter’s Festival you are also supporting hundreds of children. During the school year, the songwriters visit schools and encourage students to make their own music as well as share their creations.
