Pensacola, FL, Dec. 2016– Visit Pensacola is excited to announce several events happening in their visitor centers.

“Let’s be honest, when’s the last time you stopped into the Visitor Information Center? It’s been a long time, if ever, right?! Here’s the thing. Our VIC Centers are wonderful in terms of beautiful displays, as well as, a treasure trove for all the great happenings in and around Pensacola. The creation of VIC In-House Events will showcase our Visitor Information Centers, encourage local participation, and promote business partners. By hosting engaging VIC events, our Visitor Information Centers will become a greater asset to our tourist and a resource to re-connect with our locals.” -Jennifer Jackson Keating; VP Director of Sales & Services

Visit Pensacola is kicking off the new year with in-house events such as “Coffee with the Artist”, Celebrity book signing, pop-up opera performances, and a new activity station just to name a few. These events will be held year-round, and offer a new perspective for visitors to enjoy while getting information about our area. The Visitor Information Center events will be free of charge and will rotate between the Pensacola and Perdido Key Visitor Center locations.
