Panama City Beach Area Events

The fact that the sun shines most days means that the fun never stops in Panama City Beach. In fact, the city hosts special events just about every month of the year.

One of the newest and most exciting brings country music’s brightest stars to Frank Brown Park. Held in early September, the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam attracts thousands of visitors to performances by Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Toby Keith, Trace Adkins, Brantley Gilbert, the Charlie Daniels Band, Darryl Worley, and more.

Another popular musical event attracts scores of jazz lovers to Pier Park every spring. Held in April, the Seabreeze Jazz Festival regularly hosts Grammy Award-winning artists such as George Benson, David Sanborn, Al Jarreau, and Norman Brown.

Hundreds of visitors return to Panama City Beach every November for the Florida Ironman Triathlon, which has been held in the city since 1999. Athletes come from all over the country to compete in this grueling swimming, biking, and running event.

Another popular event Panama City has hosted for many years is the Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally. Held every spring and fall, the rally, which offers live entertainment, parades, contests, and more, is one of the biggest free biker gatherings in the country.

These are just a few of the activities Panama City hosts regularly. Check out our calendar of events for an up-to-date list of what’s going on while you’re in town.
