Every time of year is the perfect time to visit our white sand shores, but there are certain times of the year where there is, even more, to excite and entertain you. As winter fades into spring, the main difference in Fort Walton Beach are the different events that take place. Gone are the Christmas, New Year’s and even Valentine’s Day activities, and entering stage right is a new list of exciting activities, events, and adventures. And because we don’t want you to miss out on a single minute of the fun, we’ve compiled this guide to the upcoming events in Fort Walton Beach that take place after the last Valentine’s chocolate has been consumed!

The International Festival 2019, Emerald Coast Convention Center, March 23

In the melting pot of America, we can sometimes forget there is a world out there that is bigger than our hometowns and we miss out on so much. But if you’re planning on visiting Fort Walton Beach during the International Festival, it’s the perfect time to adjust your awareness, enjoy a great party, and do a good deed at the same time! Offering live entertainment, food from different cultures, and a variety of wares from our nation and others available for purchase, the proceeds from everything you purchase will go to Opportunity Place, a much-needed shelter for singles and families without homes. It’s definitely one of the best upcoming events in Fort Walton Beach to visit!

Kitty Hawk Kites Spring Kite Festival, The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island, April 6th& 7th

When we were kids, our favorite thing to do on a windy day involved lots of string and colorful fluttering paper; flying kites at the beach in Fort Walton Beach was one of many childhood highlights! The Kitty Hawk Kites Spring Kite Festival rapidly transports us back to those glorious days of our youth, and if you’re interested in watching a 100-foot octopus and an 80-foot panda duel it out in the sky, this festival should not be missed! And since it’s free, it will fit nicely into all vacation budgets. Are you ready to feel like a child again?
