Details
What: 31st Sandestin Gumbo Festival
When: Saturday, February 15, 2020
Time: 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Where: The Village of Baytowne Wharf

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 31st year, the event takes over The Village of Baytowne Wharf during Presidents Day weekend.  

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.

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.

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.

The Village of Baytowne Wharf invites local businesses and restaurants to join in the fun by becoming a gumbo participant. Participants of the Sandestin Gumbo Festival will be included in the event’s marketing package, have an opportunity to win radio and print advertising through sponsors and award winners will receive prize money. Email contact@baytownewharf.com for more information.
