This year’s theme of “Pirates of the Carrabellean -The Treasure of Gullet's Cove" will focus on the culinary delights of the area as the Carrabelle Riverfront Festival initiates a new venue attraction at the 24th Annual Festival. Sponsored by Sea Crest Realty and Sandy Beach Properties, the new "Home-style" food court aptly named "Gullet's Cove" will feature fresh seafood, caught and prepared by local buccaneers and scallywags. Indeed, Carrabelle's hometown hospitality and deep fried talent will be at full display at this year's festival. Come grab a bite o' treasure from the sea and support our local organizations.

Participating under the unique festival venue are the Christian Bow Hunters, The Carrabelle Church of God, The Franklin County Senior Services, CUMC - God's Ministry to the Needy, the Carrabelle Food Pantry and others. These groups will be preparing our main festival entrees including mullet, grouper, shrimp, oysters, hamburgers and hotdogs as well as other delicious delights to support their local community. Other festival treats like funnel cakes and blooming onions will be available by "local" festival food vendors as well.
The festival is very proud of this unique approach. Who knows better how to fry up some seafood than Carrabelleans? Home town hospitality is the hallmark of our festival. This new venue will offer the community an opportunity to display this rich heritage and will ensure that the financial benefits stay in the area. A win for all. Please join us, and support our community. We are sure that you can find a "treasure" for your gullet's cove.

Avast Ye Mateys, young and wretched, it's shaping up to be a good time on the Carrabelle River as Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers plan to wash ashore and take captive the main stage for Friday night's special event. Be sure and arrive early for the big entrance, a Carrabelle extravaganza. Like corpsed debris from the depths of Davey Jones' locker Tom and his crew of scalliwags and vermin will take the City and kick off the 24th Annual Carrabelle Riverfront Festival's Pirates of the Carrabellean - The Treasure of Gullet's Cove.
The band will take the Stage at 6pm(Carrabelle Time - which may be 10 minutes early but more likely 30 minutes late). Tom and Crew will follow J. Kuntry and crew on the main stage near the riverwalk pavilion from 4-5:45. If you miss Tom on Friday night, and we can't imagine why ye'd do so, unless yur pillaging and plundering, you can see him following the Fishy Fashion Show starting at 2pm on Saturday on the Duke Energy Stage. Fans of Debbie Jordan, be sure and arrive early as she will be entertaining the early birds and will lead the pet show and possible encore if time allows on Saturday. So don't stay up to late, there will be plenty to do and see all day on Saturday.
