Destin Kicks Off Summer Concert Series

Summer is a great time to visit the beaches of South Walton and Destin, Florida. In addition to relaxing and enjoying time on the sugar white sand beaches during the day, evenings heat up with live outdoor concerts at a variety of venues all along the Emerald Coast.
The summer concert series feature a wide variety of music and each is on a different night of the week. So grab a blanket or low back chair and take your pick from these great options. All concerts are family-friendly, free and open to the public. Bring a picnic or choose from local merchant options.
