An Emerald Coast Christmas

Event Dates and Times

12/8/2017 - 12/10/2017
Panama City Beach, FL
An Emerald Coast Christmas is a huge, one-of-a-kind holiday celebration for the Panama City Beach area. Taking place over three days at Arron Bessant Park and Amphitheater, this Christmas festival includes elements that will appeal to all:

—open festival grounds Friday through Sunday where you can visit food vendors for a meal or just a cup of hot chocolate, as well as booths where you can shop for the perfect Christmas gift.

—fun and games for the whole family, including a s’mores station, bounce houses, and more.

—a live Nativity Scene with barnyard animals and people reenacting the Christmas story.

—two performances Friday (7 PM) and Sunday (3 PM) of a full-length Christmas program by Emerald Coast Fellowship and First Baptist Woodstock-PCB. This presentation will include full choir and orchestra and will feature holiday classic both secular and sacred, with special appearances by aerial dancers, Irish dancers, children’s and youth choirs, special soloists, and more.

—performances by dozens of local bands, choirs, dance groups, and other community groups happening all day on Saturday.

An Emerald Coast Christmas is a community undertaking to create a fun and memorable moment for the best community that there is: ours! It’s a way to take a break from the hectic holiday place and join us for a couple hours of celebration. Come visit with neighbors, pick up some Christmas cheer, and carry it with you throughout the season!
