30th Annual Carrabelle Riverfront Festival

Postponed to a later date to be determined due to current CDC guidelines concerning large gatherings during COVID-19.

The Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce has been monitoring the guidelines from the CDC and the Florida Department of Health about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) over the last few weeks. Current recommendations from the CDC state that gatherings of 10 or more people should be postponed for the next 8 weeks (until May 15th). Given that guidance, we have decided to postpone the Carrabelle 30th Annual Riverfront Festival to a future date to be determined. We will continue to monitor this situation and hope to reschedule as soon as it is feasible. The safety of our staff, volunteers and guests are of the highest priority. If you have registered as a vendor, full refunds of your booth fees should be sent out soon.

The Chamber of Commerce thanks you for your continued support of all of the Carrabelle community events.


The Carrabelle Riverfront Festival is a wonderful annual tradition here on the Forgotten Coast. While we will continue to plan and prepare for another great coastal cultural and entertainment event on April 25th, we will also continue to pay close attention to the changing impacts of the COVID-19. If you are planning to attend our event be advised that plans may change and we will provide continuing updates on our Facebook page and the Riverfront Festival web site. Thank you for your continuing support of the Annual Carrabelle Riverfront Festival.
