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.

Topsail Under the Stars ~Santa Rosa Beach, Florida Events by Southern

Join Topsail Hill Preserve State Park and the Northwest Florida Astronomy Association in celebrating National Astronomy Day July 5th! Topsail Under the Stars is an evening of viewing the sun, moon, and stars through telescopes.

Solar telescopes will be out until the sun sets for you to safely view the sun. In addition, the astronomy association will switch telescopes and assist you in viewing any constellations, planets, and other astronomical objects that are visible. Meanwhile, the event is free with regular park admission. Participants must be in the park by closing time at 6 PM to enjoy in on the celestial fun! However, Topsail Under the Stars is weather permitting, so call ahead to double check!

While you’re in the area, stay at one of Southern’s vacation rentals in Santa Rosa Beach! Reserve Bishop House, a four-bedroom vacation home just a short stroll from the beach. This three-story home is part of a duplex and features accommodations for up to fourteen people.
