The list of Fort Walton events wouldn’t be complete without the Summer Jam ’18. Want to enjoy a night of music and dancing all while supporting a great cause? Then head on out to Summer Jam ’18 on Friday, July 13th at the Emerald Coast Convention Center! Headlining the event are the Mulligans, the Emerald Coast’s premier special events band, and there are will also be food, drinks, and more!

Robotics Workshops at the Emerald Coast Science Center

Looking for something a little different for the kids to do on your upcoming vacation? Then head over to the legendary Emerald Coast Science Center for one of their robotics workshops! The workshops are designed for kids ages 9-14 and take place the second and fourth Saturday of every month and will help give them an introduction to robotics and the skills to compete in the Lego League!

Fat Tuesday Parades!

Who says that Mardi Gras only needs to happen once a year? Mardi Gras is so much fun, why not just have every Tuesday be Fat Tuesday? Well, here in Fort Walton Beach, that’s exactly what we do! Every Tuesday during the summer HarborWalk Village transforms into “The Big Easy,” and we have our own Fat Tuesday celebration! Come and enjoy a parade with incredible floats, street performers, live music, and much more.
