About Pensacola Beach
Festivals and Events in Pensacola Beach
Many events take place in Pensacola throughout the year to celebrate the city’s founding. Fiestas, Balls, and other festive celebrations take place in the area and draw in thousands of guests from out of town.
The Pensacola Crawfish Festival
occurs in early May each year. The event features a variety of Cajun fare, including more than 16,000 pounds of boiled crawfish. Other featured foods include red beans and rice, chicken baskets, and deep-fried brownies. There is a crawfish eating contest held each year, and a children’s activity area.
Each December, residents and visitors can enjoy the sights of the Pensacola Beach Lighted Boat Parade. This nautical event begins at the Pensacola Beach Marina and ends at the Boardwalk. If you enjoy spending the winter holidays in a warmer climate, you can arrive early and watch Santa Claus arrives at the island.
Pensacola Beach house rentals are available all throughout the year. Visit during the summer to enjoy the sand and surf, or rent a beach house online and fly south for the winter.
