Destin Calendar of Events-2013

Not only does Destin boast beautiful waters and sugar white sands, but also a smattering of year-round events that draw visitors near and far for fishing tournaments, festivals, concerts, and other entertainment and attractions. Many people plan their vacations around Destin events, such as the annual Poker Run, which is popular with boating enthusiasts. Some of the most popular events center around fishing, so avid anglers will visit Destin during fishing tournaments, like the Destin Fishing Rodeo, which lasts the entire month of October, or dozens of other fishing tournaments throughout the year. For your convenience, we have listed many of Destin’s fishing tournaments and special events to make planning your trip even easier!

If you are interested in watching or participating in some of the events, be sure to ask if we have any special offerings available. Whether you are interested in a fishing boat rental to try your luck at one of the area’s many fishing tournaments, seeing the fireworks over the water aboard your own pontoon rental on one of our sunset cruises, or are interested in bringing your own boat and docking it in a slip rental at our marina, we can provide the boat to get you out on the water where you can enjoy many of Destin’s events.
