VIP Dinner


October 10th

10:00 am - 6:00 pm


Pensacola Beach's biggest culinary event is coming October 9-10 and you're invited!

The 13th Annual Taste of the Beach Festival kicks off Friday night, October 9, 2019 with a special progressive VIP Dinner that will transport diners to four of the island's best restaurants via trolley. The evening begins at the Pensacola Beach Visitor Information Center where guests can enjoy complimentary champagne before boarding a trolley to head to the first restaurant. Wine will be paired with each course, which will last approximately 45 minutes, and then guests will board the trolley to depart to the next restaurant.

Saturday’s daylong festival will take place October 10, from 10 am to 6 pm. The day is filled with chefs’ challenges, team cook offs, live music, tastings, restaurants’ signature dishes, a frozen zone, dining tent, hospitality tent, kids area, t-shirt sales and much more - all along the sugar-white sands and emerald-green waters of Pensacola Beach. You’ll have so much fun you’ll want to stay the whole day. Entry is free for Saturday’s festival, with nearly two dozen restaurants showcasing their signature dishes for $5 each.

Taste of the Beach is a primary off-season festival bringing thousands of locals and visitors to Pensacola Beach and has been named one of the top 20 events in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society.
