    The Sandestin Gumbo Festival has been known as one of the largest and most popular winter food events along Florida’s Emerald Coast. Now in its 29th year, the event takes over The Village of Baytowne Wharf during Presidents Day weekend. Kick-off the weekend Friday, Feb. 16 at Hammerhead’s Bar & Grill with a delicious Baytowne Seafood Boil beginning at 5 p.m. On Saturday, Feb. 17 from 12-4 p.m. guests will enjoy live Zydeco music from Dikki Du and the Zydeco Krewe, family activities and the best gumbo cook-off on the Gulf Coast.

    Festival guests can vote for “The People’s Choice” awards in gumbo and become eligible for raffle items from the participating restaurants. After “The People’s Choice” honors are given, judges will award first, second and third place for the participant categories, and even a “Best Display”. This year, event sponsor Community Broadcasters is awarding a $1,000 commercial prize package to their favorite gumbo. The awards ceremony will begin at approximately 4 p.m.

    “It’s time to see who has the best gumbo on the Emerald Coast for 2018,” says Julie Stuckey, events manager for The Village of Baytowne Wharf. “This festival’s atmosphere is so fun, with live music, free kid’s activities, and restaurants from all over our area vying for your vote! It’s a fun day for the whole family!”

    Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 on event day and are now available for purchase online at SandestinGumboFestival.com.

    The Sandestin Gumbo Festival is proud to partner with Sandestin Foundation for Kids, where a portion of the proceeds benefit the foundation’s causes and organizations that have the most impact and make a meaningful and positive difference in the lives of children.
