Arts & Culture

Serious collectors, curious window shoppers and those anxious to try their creative side at everything from glass blowing to belly dancing at hands-on working art centers are drawn to Pensacola’s dynamic art and cultural scene. Boasting ballet, opera, symphony, theatre and an accredited museum of visual arts, Pensacola is the only city between Mobile, Ala. and Tampa, Fla. to offer the “big five.”

With festivals and art shows year-round, you have access to art in all styles, from traditional to edgy. A night out in Pensacola can be equally diverse. Dress to the nines and dine on world-class cuisine before taking in a traveling Broadway show, or slip into your boots and blue jeans for a farm-fresh, country-style buffet and some of the best live bluegrass and country music entertainment.

Be sure to check our events calendar for a full range of activities. An increasingly popular event, Gallery Night opens downtown Pensacola art galleries, restaurants and shops several times a year for an after-hours evening of arts and culture.
