Seaside, FL brings thousands of visitors to our area each year for Fourth of July celebrations on the coast. Seaside offers a unique experience where the pleasures of small-town living and new urbanism prevail. Although the exceptional shopping and dining experiences, peaceful outdoor activities, and charming living spaces are provided year-round, many visitors find the beginning of July to be when Seaside comes most alive. This year, we hope to create a celebration unlike any other along the Gulf Coast.
This year, Fourth of July visitors should expect a weekend full of sun, sand, and festivities. Friday, July 1st at 8 p.m. SEASIDE® will be presenting The Princess and the Frog on the Lyceum Lawn for a night under the stars in the Amphitheater. On July 2nd, join us from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. to visit The Seaside Farmers Market which features local growers and artisans. On Sunday, July 3rd, SEASIDE® will be presenting Free Willy in the Lyceum Lawn for a movie under the stars.
On the day of the fourth, SEASIDE® is hosting patriotic activities in Central Square beginning with an all-day block party featuring balloon artists, a stilt walker, and more. Those who attend should plan to be charmed by Merchant storefronts donned in patriotic decor and second-line-style patriotic music performances around town, with a special performance by the Rep Theatre at 9AM. To finish off the day with a bang, SEASIDE® will be displaying the largest fireworks show along the Gulf Coast. View the full event schedule here.
Since the Fourth of July is such a busy time in Seaside, we advise guests to use the complimentary Seaside Shuttle which picks up from the Grayton Beach public parking lot on 283 South, directly across from the Shops of Grayton (Hurricane Oyster Bar & Grill and Black Bear). The shuttle runs every fifteen minutes from 6 a.m. to midnight. View our Transportation Guide Here.
We are so excited for the memories to be made, the good times to be shared, and the celebration of freedom during this holiday weekend.
