Destin Seafood Festival
October 7 - October 9
The Destin Seafood Festival is BACK and better than ever for 2022!
One of Destin’s most celebrated traditions, the Destin Seafood Festival kicks off the Destin Fishing Rodeo that extends the entire month of October. The event was started in 1978 by the Destin Charter Boat Association Women’s Auxiliary. While the festival has grown into its new home on the Destin Harbor Boardwalk, the Destin Seafood Festival remains the primary fundraiser for the Destin Charter Boat Association.
Formed in 1954, the Destin Charter Boat Association is a Non Profit Organization that provides many valuable contributions to our beloved city: their primary function is advocacy for Fisheries Management. They also contribute to various community development projects, and award a scholarship to the winner of the Miss Destin Pageant.
A new, smaller local festival will be taking place inside the larger Destin Seafood Festival on Saturday October 8 and Sunday October 9. This will be a ticketed event where attendees can sample items from local chefs and restaurants, drink local beers, and enjoy a day of fun.
