Destin Events Calendar

Wondering what to do while enjoying your beach vacation in Destin, Florida? I have put together a calendar of Summer Events specific to the Destin, Miramar Beach area.  All summer long you will find fun places to enjoy.

During the summer there is a Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning at Grand Boulevard, great place to find produce and products from local growers.

Fishing is Destin’s claim for fame and there are lots of Fishing festivals like the month long Destin Fishing Rodeo and the Blue Marlin Classic.

At Harborwalk Village you will find Saturday night fireworks every week and their music Rock the Docks, every Tuesday night you can find the Fat Tuesday Parades.

Sandestin’s Baytowne Wharf has a full schedule of events this summer. Check out the Sunday Cinema after visiting one of their fabulous restaurants.
