DSC00896Have you recently purchased Destin real estate or moved into a home on the Gulf Coast? If so, make plans now to head out and experience one of the best local events, the Destin Fishing Rodeo!

The Destin Fishing Rodeo is an annual event that is popular with both locals and visitors to the area. This event, along with the seafood festival, which takes places October 2nd-4th, is a celebration of Destin’s heritage and its beginnings as a simple fishing village.

The rodeo takes place October 1st-31st, and anyone is welcome to try their hand at reeling in the big one. You can either register your private boat or climb aboard a registered vessel and enter your fresh catch into the rodeo for free! During the first weekend in October, visit the Destin Harbor for three days of tasty food, live music and activities for the whole family at the Destin Seafood Festival.

Don’t like to fish? Don’t worry! You can still enjoy all the fun and excitement of this event without having to get your hands dirty. The weigh-ins take place each afternoon at AJ’s Seafood & Oyster House on the harbor and go into the evening. The weigh-ins are one of the best ways to experience the Destin Fishing Rodeo. Head out each afternoon, grab a spot near the weigh station and enjoy a snack and a cold beverage. See you on the docks!
