Activities at the Destin Seafood Festival

The Destin Seafood Festival is Destin's largest family-oriented festival, with something for everyone.

Food Court
Seafood and other entrees; hot dogs and sausages; desserts, including funnel cakes; and beer, wine, and soft drinks; are available. Covered table seating is also offered.

Arts and Crafts
Visit more than 100 arts and crafts vendors. Always a must for visitors are the t-shirts that depict the festival poster, as well as the t-shirts, caps, and jackets for sale at the Fishing Rodeo booth. Fitting for the area are the several booths with hand-carved and painted fish, both life-like and full of fantasy. Many artists in silver, copper, and gold, as well as semi-precious stones, are on hand to display their jewelry creations. Photographers and artists alike offer paintings and prints with subjects ranging from lighthouses and wildlife to seascapes and more. Wearing apparel for sale includes unusual hats, children's clothes, dresses of gingham, denim, hand-painted knits and even shoes appropriate for the beach. Several artists offer splendid arrays of pottery, glass masters display their art, and other sell soaps, candles, birdhouses, lamps, and even furniture. Perhaps the best part of such a shopping area is that the artists are on hand to talk to visitors about their products and are happy to do so.
