There is no bad time to visit Fort Walton Beach during the year, but if you come stay during the early months of the year, you will find plenty to do. Fort Walton Beach has several exciting events lined up for the early 2020 season. Take a look at what Fort Walton events await you:

Winter Guest Fest

If you frequent Fort Walton Beach quite a bit during the winter season, you might be known as a snowbird, those who escape a cold climate back home by visiting the warm beaches of Florida. Each year the Emerald Coast Convention Center hosts the Winter Guest Fest, a local trade show designed to help snowbirds feel more comfortable in Fort Walton Beach. You will be able to visit with hundreds of different local vendors and see what services and goods they offer in the area. Walk away with pouches of coupons, giveaways, and even a few surprises! This year’s Winter Guest Fest is scheduled for January 16th from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the Emerald Coast Convention Center.

12th Annual Music & Wine

The Okaloosa Arts Alliance will be hosting the 12th Annual Music & Wine event this year. This annual event helps support the arts and music programs of Okaloosa Island. This year’s festivities will take place at The Twisted Grape and feature live entertainment, giveaway drawings, and more. Delicious wine, cheese, and other food will be available for attendees to enjoy. Tickets to the 12th Annual Music & Wine start at $30 per person or $50 for a two-pack. Every ticket sold benefits the Okaloosa Arts Alliance.

First Annual Mardi Gras Ball

Do you love to celebrate Mardi Gras but also love to help support children and families in need? If so, the Emerald Coast Convention Center will be holding its First Annual Mardi Gras Ball this upcoming spring! The festivities will take place on February 8th from 5:00 PM to 11:00 PM. Expect to find costumed shenanigans, adult beverages, and live entertainment. Tickets go on sale soon, so make sure to keep an eye out for the First Annual Mardi Gras Ball this coming February.
