Palette of Vibrant Colors Awaits Artists and Visitors in Beaches of South Walton
Beaches of South Walton is home not only to emerald waters and sugary white sands, but also a vibrant community of artists that have helped to make the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast destination a favorite among those with a love for artistic expression.
The annual Autumn Tides celebration offers wonderful opportunities for travelers, residents, visiting artists and aspiring artists to mingle and even collaborate, with signature upcoming events such as Art Expo and Via Colori.
The Art Expo hosted by The Village of Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin from September 3 to 5 is a weekend “good for the art and soul” with world-class art and live music under the moonlight. Exceptional artists featured in leading galleries across the southeast gather for this three-day festival with events every evening from 5 to 10 p.m.
Via Colori on September 18 offers a more hands-on experience as artists take to the streets for an Italian-style street painting art festival. This unique community project in support of Seaside Neighborhood School brings together volunteers and businesses, and features local and visiting artists using Grand Boulevard’s main street as a giant canvas. This community favorite is open to the public.
The Inspirational Weekend from October 8 to 17 includes events to inspire with food and yoga, and also has an art component. It takes place throughout several locations in the community. There are also a number of musical events as part of the Beaches of South Walton Autumn Tides celebration.
