Fall is quickly approaching, and we are all looking forward to the cooler temps and less humidity here at Destin Beach. As the kids just returned to school, the beaches are less crowded, which only means that fall events are getting ready to happen. Staying with us in one of our Destin Beach vacation rentals will keep you and your family close to the fun. Let’s look below at three events happening this fall near Destin Beach.

Destin Fishing Rodeo

Do you like to fish when you vacation with the family at the beach each year? If yes, let us share a little about the 73rd Annual Destin Fishing Rodeo. Starting on October 1st and ending on October 31st, the docks behind AJ’s Seafood and Oyster House will be where the weigh-ins will happen. Many will be fishing from a boat if they own one, but there are many other ways that you can enter this rodeo. This year, you can fish from the pier or land, charter boats, kayaks, or paddleboards. If you’re not into fishing, why not enter the Destin Rodeo Fun Run on October 8th? Think of the new memories you’ll make as you enjoy this fishing rodeo with the family!

Destin Seafood Festival

Another fun thing you can participate in is the Destin Seafood Festival this fall. This year, it will take place Friday, October 6th through Sunday, October 8th, 2023, at the Destin Harbor Boardwalk and HarborWalk Village. Some of the things you’ll find here are fresh seafood, turkey legs, wraps, and so many more food choices. There is a new VIP Ticket option that you can enjoy called “Call to Chef,” where you can sample items from local chefs along the Emerald Coast. Bring your appetite, dancing shoes, and money as you explore the Destin Seafood Festival.
