The Destin Fishing Rodeo is an annual events that is popular with both locals and visitors to the area. This event, along with the seafood festival, which takes places the first weekend of October, is a celebration of Destin’s heritage and its beginnings as a simple fishing village.
The rodeo takes place October 1-31 and anyone is welcome to try their hand at reeling in the big one. During the seafood festivals, visit HarborWalk Village and the Destin Harbor for three days of seafood, music and vendors. Then, climb aboard your boat and heading out into the Gulf of Mexico. When aboard a Destin charter boat, your entrance into the rodeo is free!
Don’t like to fish? Don’t worry! You can still enjoy all the fun and excitement of this event. The nightly weigh-ins take place each evening at AJ’s restaurant on the harbor and are one of the best ways to experience the rodeo. Head out each afternoon, grab a spot near the weigh station and grab a snack. See you on the docks!
