Fort Walton Beach Area Events

One of the highlights of the year in Fort Walton Beach is the Billy Bowlegs Festival. Held in early June, this annual uprising of local “pirates” commemorates the life of pirate William Augustus Bowles, who prowled the area during the eighteenth century. Events include a mock battle, live bands, food, arts and crafts, a torchlight parade, children’s activities, and fireworks.

Okaloosa Island hosts an annual Mardi Gras celebration that includes a Friday evening ball and a Saturday parade. Music, food, costumes, and children’s activities add to the fun.

Throughout the year, the area hosts live theater performances, concerts, art shows, fishing tournaments, and a host of other special events. Check out our calendar of events for an up-to-date list of what’s going on while you’re in town.
