The 34th Annual Sandestin Wine Festival will take place April 16-19, 2020. The Sandestin Wine Festival has been named the “Best Annual Event” by Destin Magazine, and is known as the Best event in the Visit South Walton Beaches Wine and Food Festival area.
The Sandestin Wine Festival at Baytowne Wharf brings an opportunity for discovery. Four days of unique events open up a wide range of experiences from attending wine dinners with celebrity chefs, participating in preview events throughout the year, and taking part in wine tastings that showcase hundreds of wines.
Wine novices are able to learn more about wines and sample from a comprehensive selection in all varieties, styles, and price ranges. Wine aficionados enjoy meeting winemakers, asking detailed questions, and acquiring hard to get selections. An added bonus is the opportunity to immediately purchase your favorite selections at the ABC Fine Wine and Spirits Retail Tent at a discounted rate. Everyone gets to enjoy the live music, interactive experiences at the Culinary tents, and shops and dining of the Village of Baytowne Wharf. THIS EVENT IS RAIN OR SHINE!
The 34thAnnual Sandestin Wine Festival is sure to be a memorable event.
What began as a small fundraiser for the Seaside Neighborhood School is now a cherished annual tradition, with tickets for the races selling out months in advance. The Seaside School Half Marathon & 5k Run is scheduled for March 3, 2019, and will welcome runners on a fast, mostly flat course that runs through quaint beach towns along scenic 30-A. Starting at 7 a.m. from Seaside, the racers will run west past the beach towns of Watercolor, Grayton Beach, Blue Mountain Beach, and Santa Rosa Beach with the halfway point and turnaround at Gulf Place.
After the race is over, exhausted medal-toting runners are treated to a free live concert in Seaside’s amphitheater, slow-cooked barbecue, hand-blown glass trophies for category winners and Vera Bradley handbags. Half marathon finishers also receive a custom medal.
The perfect mix of cool beach weather and red-hot music is what you will find during the 30A Songwriters Festival. More than 175 artists perform in this truly collaborative event, allowing some of the craft’s most talented songwriters to offer an in-depth look into the creative process. Artists will perform many live performances in intimate venues and large amphitheaters throughout the 16 beach neighborhoods of South Walton.
