Mattie Kelly Arts Festival & Concerts Slate Return
Exciting art news! One of our favorite Destin events, the Mattie Kelly Arts Festival, will be held next month. New precautions will be in place due to the pandemic, but organizers are hopeful that the safety measures will lead to a successful event. The annual event will be held October 24-25 and will feature artists from across the United States – a perfect stop while on your Destin vacation. Other highlights include musical entertainment and various food vendors.
Festival tents will be spaced 10-feet apart. In addition, festival goers are asked to help in these ways:
- MaintainĀ 6-feet distance between your group and other attendees
- If in line for food, stay 6-feetĀ behind the next person in line
- Wash your hands frequently and bring hand sanitizer
- Wear a mask if you so choose
In addition, more good news involve the outdoor concerts that will once again bring the music to the Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Village. A full slate of evening concerts are scheduled for the next several weeks. Gates will open at 6:00 p.m. with the concerts beginning at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased on-site with general adult admission $15.
