Taste of the Beach

Bringing celeb chefs and top restaurants to the sand

September 7 - 15, 2018


Taste of the Beach brings the best of Pensacola’s restaurants right down to the sandy shoreline for a weekend celebration of all things southern, seafood, savory and sweet. It’s a one-stop festival shop for the best parts of any vacation: beaches and food!

From VIP celebrity chef events to low-cost samples of local, top restaurants’ signature dishes, it’s a foodie paradise wrapped in a beach paradise – with a side of sunset.

The Pensacola Beach event kicks off with a spectacular guest chef presentation and cooking demonstration and opportunity for fans to connect in the intimate setting. Past celebrity chefs include Food Network favorite Chef John Besh and Carla Hall of “Top Chef” and “The Chew.”

Throughout the weekend, local chefs are whipping up their favorite dishes and even a few new culinary experiments featuring oysters, shrimp, crawfish and the most delicious seafood the gulf has to offer.

The menu changes ever year, but you’ll also find landlubber fare such sliders, sandwiches and sweets.

So, if your ideal vacation is flip-flops and a fork, we’ll see you at Taste of Pensacola Beach!
