The idea is simple – a celebration of the wonderful array of local area seafood prepared by local chefs merged with local and nationally acclaimed wines, entertainment and vendors with a special focus on families. The Panama City Beach Seafood, Wine & Music Festival is designed to reflect a true taste of the coast, a true toast to the coast and some of the world’s best entertainment – we promise it will be like no other festival ever presented on Panama City Beach.

Local and area celebrity chef’s from some of the legendary Panama City Beach restaurants including Breakers, Saltwater Grill, Firefly, Hammerhead Fred’s, Boatyard, and more to be announced will perform special exhibitions over the 3 day event – featuring some of the best seafood you ever eaten, and some of the best wine you’ve ever tasted! This is in addition to the wonderful array of food available from local and area restaurants. Other various food vendors will supply the staples you’ve come to love about outdoor festivals.
