Welcome to the 36th Annual Destin Seafood Festival. The Seafood Festival is hosted along the beautiful Destin Harbor and the Harbor Boardwalk right on the water, with the action of the Destin Fishing Rodeo right in the heart of the Festival. There is to be lots of excitement along the docks; come join the fun! This is so much more than a festival to us - It is a tribute to the rich history of the Destin Harbor and the Fishing community. The Festival was founded by the Destin Charter Boat Association's Women's Auxiliary in 1978 as a fund raiser and labor of love for the local fishing fleet. Their objective was to attract people to the area, introducing them to the spoils that Destin has to offer in the fall. Today the tradition lives on with the Destin Charter Boat Association who has teamed up with the local business community, Destin restaurants and seafood markets in an effort to sustain this much loved part of Destin's heritage.
Come join us along the Boardwalk for a great weekend of seafood, live music, arts & crafts and family fun. More than 60,000 locals and visitors are expected to attend and we are ecstatic to host this event. This three day festival will be full of arts, crafts, music, food, entertainment, fireworks, and excitement for all! It will showcase the Best that Destin has to offer on the Harbor. Stroll along the Harbor Board Walk from one end to the other with over a mile of Festival on the water showcasing Destin's Fishing Fleet, Harbor Restaurants & Bars and breath taking sunsets!
The 2014 Festival once again is excited to have Ocean Reef Vacation Resorts on board as our Official Accommodation's Sponsor of the Destin Seafood Festival.
