Gumbo Fest Sandestin

Do you have the winter blues? Come to the beach and enjoy our winter hues, delicious gumbo and celebrate love!

If you love gumbo, you’ve come to the right place. With Louisiana influencing our cuisine, many of our area chefs know just what it takes to make the perfect roux. Join us on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018 for the annual Sandestin Gumbo Festival. One of the region’s largest and most popular winter events, the Gumbo Cookoff will feature more than a dozen teams competing for your vote and the coveted title of Best Gumbo on the Gulf Coast. The featival will be held from noon to 4 p.m. at the Village of Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin and features live music from Dikki Du and the Zydeco Krewe, family activities and the best gumbo around.  Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of. 

Stay at least three nights and take advantage of our Valentine’s Day Be Loved promotion and we’ll kick off your stay with a bottle of wine and $50 gift certificate to Silver Sands Premium Outlets. And since Monday will be Presidents Day, there is no better excuse to stay and enjoy some extra beach time.
