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 City of Gulf Shores Fourth of July Fireworks Celebration ~ Gulf Shores, Alabama Events by Southern

Spend your Independence Day watching sparks fly from the Gulf State Park Fishing and Education Pier! Gulf Shores’ annual Fourth of July fireworks Celebration will kick off at 9 p.m. at the ideal location for watching the light show.

Get there early to get a great fireworks parking spot for FREE at around Lake Shelby! In addition, stop for a bite to eat from one of the local food trucks. Meanwhile, listen to some music and have a relaxing evening by the lake. Walk across the city’s new pedestrian bridge to watch the fireworks at the pier, or just pull up a lawn chair and stay at the lake.
