Call to Artists: Destin Seafood Festival
The theme of the 36th Annual Destin Seafood Festival, “Heritage on the Harbor,” celebrates the festival’s location, among the docks, charter boats and fishermen. Artists are invited to submit their handcrafted work showcasing this theme by 11 a.m. June 2. No computer-generated or enhanced artwork will be accepted.
The entries will be voted on by the Destin Seafood Festival Committee and the Destin Charter Boat Association and the winner will be announced on June 15.
The 36th Annual Destin Seafood Festival, Oct. 3-5, will be set up along the length of Destin harbor from Harborwalk Village to Heron Harbor, including Harry T’s, Olin Marler’s, AJ’s, Galati’s, Dewey Destin’s, the City of Destin Royal Melvin Heritage Park, Fisherman’s Wharf and East Pass Marina. The location puts the festival right in the heart of the action along the harbor, and the Destin Fishing Rodeo, which takes place the entire month of October.
For an artist’s application or to find out how you or your business can be a part of the festival, contact the Festival Event Coordinator at 850-428-7783, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.DestinSeafoodFestival.org.
