Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort’s 24th Annual Sandestin Gumbo Festival will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2013, at the Village of Baytowne Wharf (12 p.m. – 4 p.m.). People from all over the southeast are expected to join in the festivities during the extended Presidents Day weekend.

“The Gumbo Festival is one of our longest running and most enjoyable food events,” said Lanier Motes, Special Event Manager for the Village of Baytowne Wharf. “Many Gulf Coast restaurants serve up their best gumbo, hoping to take home the ‘Area’s Best’ and ‘People’s Choice’ awards. Guests can look forward to tasting great gumbo and voting for their favorite, while listening to live Zydeco music.”
