Navarre Area Events

Navarre Beach is a relatively quiet and peaceful location nestled between the bigger tourism markets of Pensacola and Destin. Chock-full of natural beauty like sea turtle nests, artificial reefs with colorful marine life and miles upon miles of pristine sugar-white sands overlooking waves of turquoise water rolling in — it’s enough to make one want to simply lay out and observe all day long.

However, don’t mistake serene for boring. Navarre is much more than just a good-looking place. There is plenty of fun and entertainment to enjoy between sunbathing and taking in the sights. Beginning on the very first day of the year with the Penguin Plunge for those who want to brave the “cold” waters all the way through getting into the holiday spirit with the spectacular Christmas Lights in The Park, there is always something to do year round in Navarre. Spring showers always give way to family fun at Navarre Fun Fest each April. For the last 30-plus years, Fun Fest brings a bit of everything all together for two straight days — from local artists to live entertainment, fireworks and of course delicious food. There are live concerts at Navarre Park every Thursday during the summer for a pre-weekend celebration with good music, good food and good views of the Santa Rosa Sound. Fall is festival time in Navarre, and is the perfect time for a Navarre Beach vacation for those who prefer uncrowded beaches and mild temperatures. The busiest time of year for events seems to be September, which includes everything from a sand sculpting festival to an arts festival and a Regatta race. October might be when the temperatures begin to cool a bit, but the events schedule still sizzles with a fishing rodeo/competition, a Monarch Madness festival at the local butterfly house as well as a Car, Truck & Bike Show at the High School where muscle cars and sleek steel are on display for public viewing and photo ops. Take a look at a few of the upcoming events below, and begin planning accordingly for your favorite event or favorite time of year. No matter how you choose, there is sure to be something going on in or near Navarre to put your stay at a Navarre Beach house or condo over the top!
