Perdido Key Pirate Fest


When: Oct 25 - 26, 2014 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

No black flags fly above the turquoise waters of Perdido Key these days. Most of the time, the only pirates who frequent these parts are the Pirates of Lost Treasure, a local Mardi Gras krewe. However, all that will change on Oct. 25-26 2014, when an eager horde of young buccaneers descends on Big Lagoon State Park — for the annual Pirate Festival.




November - 2014

Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival


When: Nov 6 - 16, 2014
Where: Multiple locations
The festival is dedicated to the late Frank Brown, who was night watchman at the Flora-Bama for 28 years, and whose moral values, integrity and strength of character still endure. During this festival, Grammy Award winning songwriters and the up and coming stars of tomorrow come into the spotlight to perform original songs in multiple locations in beautiful Perdido Key and Pensacola, Florida and Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama. Festival attendees enjoy an up close and personal concert experience and are often able to learn the stories behind the songs as told by the original author. Venues of all kinds welcome the nearly 200 songwriters that come from around the country and around the world. Whether you are looking for a "listening room" experience, a pleasant dinner and music venue, a family friendly musical adventure or a gritty roadhouse, FBISF has a place for you. Most venues are free to attend; a few charge a modest cover at the door. The Southeast Tourism Society named the 2011 Frank Brown International Songwriters' Festival one of the top 20 events in the Southeast.

Flora-Bama Annual Santa Drop

It doesn’t matter how old you are, you can still sit on Santa’s lap and ask for whatever you want! We can’t guarantee you’ll get it, but it’s worth a shot. This special day is fun for everyone, especially Cathy Pace & Santa’s helpers who sing Christmas carols with the children.
