Get Your Gumbo On!


If you love Gumbo while walking around in the sunshine, then you need to come down to the Gumbo Festival in Sandestin.

Baytowne Wharf’s annual Gumbo Festival is set for Feb. 13-14, 2015. The main event will be Feb. 14 at Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. The main event will include more than a dozen local restaurants, associations and clubs competing for the coveted prize of the best gumbo along the Emerald Coast.

On the afternoon of Feb. 13, there will be a seafood boil at Fat Tuesday’s which will mark the official kickoff of the festival.

Each participant will have their own special gumbo for ticket holders to try. The gumbos range from fancy duck gumbo to the standard seafood gumbo to gumbo in such a deep, dark roux that you’d think it was motor oil.

This event gets bigger and better every year. This will be the 26th Gumbo Festival, so don’t delay and get on down to sample the area’s best gumbo.
