Panama City Beach Food & Drink Festivals

Known as the seafood capital of the south and home to a dynamic local dining scene with options to suit every taste, Panama City Beach’s cuisine is second to none. Throughout the year, food and drink festivals dot the calendar and showcase the region’s rich culinary offerings while offering family-friendly fun. One of the highlights of the year is the UNwineD presented by Publix festival, held each spring in Aaron Bessant Park and featuring culinary creations from many of Northwest Florida’s renowned chefs, along with some of the best craft beer, spirits and wine from around the world. The event also includes a live concert in the park and a picnic. 

Other can’t-miss food and drink events throughout the year include the PCB Food Truck & Craft Beer Festival in February, featuring several food trucks, craft beer, outdoor games and more. In October, the PCB Oktoberfest is on for three days of German beer, food, music, as well as activities for kids and families. Finally, Panama City Beach also hosts a festival that celebrates one of the region’s most popular beverages, the annual Blood Mary & Music Festival in October, with 20 local businesses competing for the coveted distinction of the best Bloody Mary on the beach!
