Late Summer Events in Destin

Late Summer Events in Destin

Do you find yourself wondering what to do in Destin while the summer is still here? Whether you’re a local or on vacation, there are still plenty of fun, late summer events in Destin that everyone will enjoy. Plus, most of these activities are family-friendly, so you won’t have to leave the little ones behind. The summer of fun is still here! Read on below for some of our favorite late summer events in Destin. Don’t forget that you can still secure your spot on the sand this summer with our lodging partners Southern Vacation Rentals as well, as they regularly add new vacation rentals in Destin to their inventory.

  • Our neighbors in Pensacola Beach are well-known for their Tuesday night Bands on the Beach series, but did you know we have something similar in Destin as well? Every Wednesday you can catch live music at the Village of Baytowne Wharf with their Wednesday Night Concert Series from 7-9 PM. Just bring your lawn chair, blanket, and sit back as you enjoy some tunes! Don’t forget to grab a snack or cool beverage from some of the local merchants at Baytowne Wharf before the show!
  • The Emerald Coast Poker Run is coming up this August 7th-10th, with stops in Shalimar, Fort Walton Beach, Navarre Beach, Pensacola Beach, and of course, Destin! This is one of the largest and most popular charity poker runs in the country, with all proceeds from Emerald Coast Boat week going to the recipient charities of the Emerald Coast Foundation, which has raised over $2.5 million for local kids in need throughout the years.
  • In addition, HarborWalk Village’s Labor Day celebration rounds out summer, and if you have never been to one of HarborWalk’s fireworks shows over the Harbor then you won’t want to miss this one! Held on both August 31st and September 1st from 6:30-9:30 PM, the event sends off summer in style with live music, family-friendly entertainment, and fireworks over the Destin Harbor at the end of the evening.

Of course, there is still time to book your vacation rental in Destin, Florida before the summer is over! Treat yourself (and the whole family) to a stay at Aqua Easy, a three-bedroom home in Destin Pointe with just enough room for eight. Nearby beach access, community amenities, and recently updated furnishings make this home one of our favorites!
