The Magic Is in the Details

Also participating in the event, held in the historic Fort Coombs Armory,  are local shopkeepers, artists, and designers, who lend their own creativity to the decoration of individual tables. Each of the tables features its own unique theme, ranging from artistic to elegant to funky. It’s no wonder this event has been going strong for more than two decades, making its date one to mark on the calendar months in advance.

Tickets sell for an easy 60 bucks, which is a great entertainment value, considering the care and creativity that go into the event. For tickets and more information, call the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce at (850) 653-9419.

Plenty More in Town To See and Do

While you’re in town for this fun and tasty sampling, you’ll also want to take in the views of the area’s pristine beaches, bays, and marshes. There are ample opportunities for fishing, boating, kayaking, and hiking, as well. Guided tours are available up the Apalachicola River to see the historic waterfront.

Apalachicola boasts several museums and has many fine old homes and buildings, including the cotton warehouses that once stored one of the city’s biggest exports. Apalachicola has more than 900 structures listed in its National Historic District. Many of these, including the landmark Trinity Episcopal Church, date back to the early 1800s.
