Arts & Drafts
Close out your last weekend of summer with a bang (literally) at HarborWalk Village! From a signature HarborWalk event kicking off the weekend to the celebration of Labor Day with live entertainment and fireworks - there’s fun for all and we’re all for fun!
Explore each of your senses during a night of arts, drafts, and entertainment along the Destin Harbor. Arts & Drafts, a signature HarborWalk Village event, returns during Labor Day Weekend on Friday, September 2nd from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM. Arts & Drafts is an all-ages, cultural event featuring local artisan displays and unique samplings from breweries. Artists feature one-of-a-kind creations in open-air tents lining the Harbor. Brewmasters offer a wide variety of locally, fine-crafted brew samples as you stroll through the lights and sounds of a fully-immersive art exhibition. This event signifies the end of summer and transitions HarborWalk Village perfectly into fall festivities!
A preview of artists to anticipate this year includes Pour Me Another with acrylic pour paintings, Murat Leather Goods/Masque Global with handmade leather goods, Renee's Touch of Country with handmade jewelry, Ascot Drifting with customizable skateboards, Artistically Wired with unique wired art, and MORE! Attendees are invited to take on the role of artist with the community art project - a designated portion of harbor pavement for community chalking!
Breweries on-site for sampling will include Odd Pelican Beer Co., Oyster City Brewing, and Props Craft Brewery & Taproom. A highlight feature of this event includes unique, mobile sampling stations such as Kombi Keg 30A, Tipsy Mule, and Lily Photo Bus. Kombi Keg and Tipsy Mule are repeat fan favorites for their unique twist on “beer on the go”. Simply step up to what resembles a piece of 70’s history with a brightly colored van and camper - with taps on the sides! New to the event this year is Lily Photo Bus, capturing the moment on camera while also serving up some traditional, ice-cold favorites!

- Oyster City Brewing sampling Mangrove Mango Pale Ale, Apalach IPA, and Hooter Brown Ale!
