Escambia County is turning 200 in July and we want you to participate. Here’s how:


Bar & Restaurant Participation 

If you are a bar or restaurant, we ask that you please put the 23-Star Salute on your menu as a special for the entire month of July with the set price of $10.75 and the same recipe. Why? By having the same item available throughout the destination, you’re providing an opportunity to start the conversation around Escambia County and its history. We will also be running a photo challenge for those enjoying the beverage to share for a chance to be featured throughout the month, so this gives our locals and visitors several opportunities to join in the fun and an opportunity for your business to be featured!


23-Star Salute

If you choose to participate, please email so that we can add your business to a special listing page and track social interaction around your business. Additionally, we’ll forward information on drink history, and how to participate in the challenge for your marketing materials. 

Host a Themed Event!

To get the community into the spirit, we’re showcasing events leading up to the 200th anniversary. We invite you to participate by throwing a 200th themed event anytime from now through the month of July. 

If you’d like to participate, please submit your event here.
