Best Event at Sandestin Invites You to Pursue the Roux, Feb. 17-18

Gumbo Fest Sandestin

One of our favorite aspects of February is the annual Sandestin Gumbo Festival at the Village of Baytowne Wharf. This annual event is held in a beautiful setting overlooking the Choctawhatchee Bay and serves up a delicious variety of gumbo.

On Friday, Feb. 17 at 5 p.m., the Crawfish Boil Kick-off Party begins at Hammerhead’s Bar & Grill. Guests are invited to come out and enjoy a plate of boiled crawfish for $15/plate. 

On Saturday, Feb.18, the main event will be held throughout the Village. The 28thAnnual Sandestin Gulf Festival invites tasters of all ages to come out and sample a variety of gumbo and vote for your favorite to determine the “People’s Choice” winner. Do you prefer: Dark or light roux? Chicken, sausage or seafood? Gulf Coast restaurants will be serving it all along with live zydeco music and children’s activities.  Tickets are $25/taster in advance. $30/taster at the event.
