The organizers of the Destin Seafood Festival, scheduled for October 1-3, 2021, have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.
This marks the second year in a row that the festival has been cancelled.
According to a statement from the organization, the cancellation is due to the “ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the logistical challenges and responsibilities of bringing tens of thousands of people together safely.”
“We would like to thank the patrons, property hosts, sponsors, vendors, and volunteers who have whole heartedly supported our event,” said Jim Green, spokesperson for the festival.
The Destin Fishing Rodeo will still have daily weigh-ins the whole month of October.
