Wyndham Vacation Rentals recently announced that its ResortQuest brand continues to support the Destin community by sponsoring fall events integral to tourism in Destin. The major sponsorships include Bluegrass at the Beach, the Destin Beer Festival in conjunction with Beer Week, the Destin Seafood Festival and the Destin Fishing Rodeo.

“We are thrilled to partner with these fall festivals and events that have a dynamic impact on the local community and its economy,” said Lino Maldonado, vice president of operations, Wyndham Vacation Rentals, Gulf Region. “Along with mild fall temperatures and the area’s beautiful beaches, these unique events are turning the fall into a prime time to visit the Emerald Coast.”

The festivals and accommodation offers for these fall events include:
