Seaside offers a variety of great musical performances throughout the year. From traditional New Orleans sounds during our Mardi Gras celebration to the classic pops concert with the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra on July 4, our town aims to bring high quality talent from all over the country. The Jazz on the Lawn series has been a hit with return acts like Alabama Jazz Hall of Famer Eric Essix and local favorite and former “The Voice” contestant, Geoff McBride.

The longest running of all event series is the Summer Concert Series, which features up and coming artists from around the South. Past acts include Dawes, Jason Isbell, The Apache Relay, Ryan Kinder and Big Sam’s Funky Nation. Enjoy family-friendly performances on the Amphitheater lawn with beach chairs and blankets while sharing a delicious selection of eats from the famous grocery, Modica Market, our iconic Airstream row and other great restaurants in town.

Former Seaside Events Director, Adam Shiland, helped to curate these quality acts to bring amazing musicians to Seaside. Featured groups visiting this summer include Guthrie Brown & The Family Tree (June 3), John & Jacob (June 24) The Shadowboxers (July 1), Humming House (July 22) The Mulligan Brothers (July 29), and local favorite Forrest Williams (August 12).

We want our events lineup to be something special for all ages.

My favorite thing to hear from our guests is about how they make each of our events family traditions. To have the chance to help make our little beach town a part of their vacation memories is truly an honor. We hope to see you with beach chairs and blankets in the amphitheater this Summer season!

All events are sponsored by the Seaside Merchants. More info at or
