Lionfish Festival and Tournament

Celebrate the efforts to protect our waters at the 9th Annual Lionfish Removal and Awareness Festival on May 19-21 at HarborWalk Village on the Destin harbor.

The event will feature family-friendly activities, art, diving and marine conservation booths, live music, fillet demonstrations, lionfish tastings, and the world's largest lionfish spearfishing tournament, the Emerald Coast Open.

This annual event raises awareness about lionfish; a nonnative, invasive species that could negatively impact native species and habitat.

Lionfish & Libations will also take place Saturday, May 20, where visitors can take part in samplings of local brews, craft beers, seltzers, and more while enjoying live music, conservation and art vendors, lionfish demonstrations, and Lionfish Tournament Weigh-Ins.
