Upcoming Events

An Alluring Array of Cultural Events

When you hear the word "beach," you may think of summer. However, fall and winter are also popular seasons at Beaches of South Walton due, in part, to the variety of festivals and cultural events scheduled at that time of year. Fall marks the return of Autumn Tides, a unique series of events that celebrate the life of Walton County's varied cultural, natural and historical resources.

There's always something interesting to see and do -- in addition to the beach and sunshine -- regardless of when you visit!
