The city’s largest celebration of rum, music, food, and fun – the Pensacola Beach Rum Festival 2018 – is on its way. While being held at the Sandshaker Lounge, the home of the original Bushwacker, on Saturday, June 9 in Pensacola Beach, you know this is bound to be a great time. And, of course, it’ll go by fast, because as they say, “Time flies when you’re having rum!”
Details on the 2018 Rum Festival
Liquor vendors from all over the coast will be bringing their favorite rum for you to try while educating you on how it was made and where it’s from. This VIP rum tasting event will go from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. while featuring over 50 rums for you and your friends to sample. Not to mention the special festival drink menu with specially-made cocktails that feature five different rums selected by the distributors at the festival.
There will also be countless giveaways, giving you the chance to go home with lots of cool, free items. This year is also the first-ever Rum Festival Bikini Contest, which starts at 5 p.m. Of course, there will also be plenty of food vendors and other merchants set up at the festival for you to browse and enjoy.
This wouldn’t be a festival without some great live music performances so get ready to rock out as Makenna & Brock hit the Outdoor Stage at 3 p.m. Starting at 6 p.m. is the Chris Winward Band on the Outdoor Stage before Philo graces the Indoor Shaker Stage at 10 p.m. These guys will take the stage until 2 a.m., making this festival go way into the wee-morning hours.
