Aaron Bessant Park is home to Seabreeze Jazz Festival every year in April in Panama City Beach. The centerpiece of Aaron Bessant Park is a state-of-the-art amphitheater, which hosts world famous musicians as easily as local community performances, all just steps from the Gulf of Mexico on Front Beach Road. 

Located adjacent to Pier Park, the 70-acre Aaron Bessant Park also features a veterans memorial, 3 looping trails that are great for walking (North Loop, South Loop, and Amphitheater Loop), and an open, grassy area that is perfect for watching the concert performances or for picnics and throwing the Frisbee in the sun on non-concert days.
