Fun Fall Events in Destin
Have Fun this Fall in Destin!
While Summer may be peak season here in Destin, we think Fall is where the fun really begins! Some of our favorite events in Destin take place during the Fall, like the Destin Fishing Rodeo or the Seafood Festival. Check out some of our favorite events listed below; who knows, you may even find something fun to do while you are in town!
- Destin Fishing Rodeo: October 1-31 – There’s a reason why Destin is called “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village!” Beginning in May of 1948, the Destin Fishing Rodeo now takes place during the month of October and is the area’s premier fishing event. This event is fun for the whole family, as you can watch the weigh-ins for free every day during the festival! Gather together at AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar from 10 AM – 7 PM every day in October for daily weigh-ins, kids activities, rodeo events, and more.
- Destin Seafood Festival: October 5-7 – What better way to kick off the Destin Fishing Rodeo than with the Destin Seafood Festival? In its 40th year, the¬†festival is a staple of Destin history and tradition. Dance to live music while sampling some of Destin’s popular cuisine from local restaurant vendors. Plus, you can purchase artwork from local artists! This is one festival you don’t want to miss.
- Destin 5K Rodeo Run: October 7 – There is more Rodeo fun to be had! Work up an appetite for the Destin Seafood Festival with the 5K Rodeo Run. The run starts at Clement E. Taylor Park on Calhoun Avenue and winds along a tree-lined course. The run is only $25, with the proceeds going to the Miss Destin scholarship fund along with local charities. Be among the first 200 to register for a Destin 5K Rodeo Run t-shirt!
- Baytowne Wharf Beer Festival: October 12-13 – This is the #1 beer festival on the coast! The 11th Annual Baytowne Wharf Beer Festival invites beer aficionados and novices alike to the Village at Baytowne Wharf for two days of beer-filled fun.
