Since 2004, Panama City Beach holds Friday Fest the first Friday of every month from February to November. If you’re familiar with this tradition of over a decade old, you may be thinking, “it just ended last month”! However, we’re thinking more along the lines of “it’s about to start up again in just over a month!”
Friday Fest is presented by the Downtown Improvement Board. At Friday Fest, Panama City comes alive with music, food and fun from 6pm to 10 pm on the first Friday of every month.
You can expect to see things such as over 200 car shows, over 50 vendors, and live bands that cover six blocks of Harrison Avenue. Local shops and restaurants stay open late…until the festivities die down at 10pm.
This is Bay County’s largest street festival. Whether you’re a regular, or you have never been to this fabulous festival, grab a friend and shop, eat and make merry at Friday Fest! There’s no excuse for not having a good time on Friday night when it’s Friday Fest night!
If you’d like to be a vendor at Friday Fest, the deadline for applications is the Friday BEFORE each festival and payment is required with it to hold your space. It is recommended that you get your applications in early to avoid space filling up and being turned away.
If you have a band you’d like to have play at Friday Fest, you should call 850-785-2554.
