South Coast Summerfest, a 10-day celebration of summer on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, showcases the waterways and local culture of coastal Mississippi. This first annual festival offers special tours on local waterways, kayak events, and beach parties from Pascagoula to Bay St. Louis will provide family fun and entertainment with local music and beach fun!

South Coast Summerfest also includes kayak training opportunities and a kayak camp for kids. The festival closes with an Outdoor Expo to display and sell paddlesports equipment and outdoor recreational gear at Ft. Maurepas, Front Beach in Ocean Springs.

South Coast Summerfest celebrates our natural heritage and supports local music, food and art. Organizers plan to bring 5,000 local and regional "day-trippers” to join the summer fun; they plan to bring about 500 kayakers from the region to enjoy coastal kayaking at its finest! Initial support for national and regional advertising is generously offered by Gulf Coast Regional Tourism Partnership through a grant from BP. Currently Natural Capital Development and festival organizers are seeking additional festival sponsorship to underwrite local festival production costs.
