31st Annual Carrabelle Riverfront Festival
April 23 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
The 31st Annual Carrabelle Riverfront Festival in Carrabelle, Florida is a full day of free, family-friendly activities, live music, entertainment, unique and colorful arts & craft vendors, and delicious food planned for Saturday, April 23, 2022, from 10 am – 6 pm. There will be plenty of activities for the kids, young & old along the beautiful, historic waterfront.
Returning again this year is the fun and raucous Captain Davy’s Adventure Show and his fun-filled band of pirates with music, magic, and mayhem. The popular free children’s mini-train rides and a bouncy house will be back again too. There will be plenty of family-friendly fun entertainment for the grown-ups to enjoy too!
Carrabelle’s very own crazy Fishy Fashion Show by Joan Matey will be making a splash with this season’s “Dos and Do Knots” of coastal couture. Maritime models show off astonishing, nautical-themed outfits made from found and recycled materials like sea nets, old beach umbrellas, oyster sacks, sails, sponges, and washed-up debris. This signature event will amaze and delight audiences all of the ages and will make waves of laughter and fun.
Feet will be tapping to the upbeat, fun classic and rock favorites from across the decades with NightShift with special guest Eric Pfeufer as well as a variety of talented musicians performing a range of genres.
There will be lots of delicious food to choose from like fried shrimp, BBQ, funnel cakes, cotton candy, and ice cream treats. Visitors can browse the many interesting arts and craft vendors and explore the local shops, museums, and galleries in and experience the day along the Carrabelle riverfront.
And of course the family friendly Exhibitor Expo on Avenue B hosted by the Carrabelle History Museum with exciting and informative exhibits like a WWII military vehicle display and the Ramblin’ Reptile Program from 11 – 2 pm with snakes, exotic tortoises and turtles and even an alligator.
Admission to this family-friendly and pet-friendly event is FREE and open to the public. The Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce invites you to experience a family fun-filled day along the beautiful and historic Carrabelle harbor and river!
