Join Us in Cape San Blas for These Fall Events

Fall is an ideal time to visit Cape San Blas. The immaculate, white-sand beaches that this untouched area of the Gulf Coast is known for are even less crowded than during the peak season. The weather—while still warm—is temperate, and there a number of events that are sure to please. Here are some of our favorites:

Port Ober Fest- September 22nd

This event kicks off at noon on Reid Avenue in Port St. Joe. Presented by the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce, Port Ober Fest features plenty of food and drink, a sidewalk sale and music, courtesy of The Polka Dots and other local bands. Don your lederhosen or dirndl and come out for some German inspired fun!
