The Annual Orange Beach Seafood Festival and Car Show returns to the Wharf on Saturday, February 29, 2020. The 28th annual event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The festival is the major fundraising event for the Makos Academics Arts & Athletics Club (MAAAC) and Orange Beach Middle & High School. The 2020 event will feature a full day of delicious food, 130 artists from throughout the South, and music for the whole family on two stages. In addition, there will be a large Kids' Zone with activities, and a huge car show - featuring antique, classic and hot rod vehicles.
There will be a Dog Parade at 2 p.m. so make plans to bring your furry best friend in costume. Registration starts at noon at the designated booth on Main Street. Participants must be in costume and may use a wagon, stroller or other small unmotorized decorated "float" that can be pulled. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place. There is no fee but donations will be accepted for animal rescue groups.
Parking will be available for $2, which is a donation that will go directly to Orange Beach schools.
Please note that the Car Show has moved to the west side of The Wharf to accommodate more vehicles. Vehicles can be registered on the day of the event but everyone is encouraged to sign up beforehand.
