October is a Festive Month in NW Florida

Fresh Oysters

Eat oysters at the Franklin County Oyster Festival in October.

October in Northwest Florida is glorious. Average temperatures are in the 70s, and there are more sunny days than at any other time during the year. If the air can be crisp in Florida, it is most likely to be crisp in October when humidity levels are at their lowest. In short, if you’ve been thinking about visiting Florida, go in October. We hope you’ll stay in NW Florida Bed and Breakfasts while there.

The 2011 October calendar is full of festivals and fun events:

  • Peanut Festival, October 1 & 2, Gabbert Farm, about an hour north of Pensacola.

Guests of Northwest Florida Bed and Breakfasts in October will feast on stone crabs, oysters and peanuts. They’ll drink Florida wine, and beer from all over the world. They’ll celebrate nature and art. When not participating in these fine festivals, they’ll go for long beach walks and swim in the Gulf of Mexico.

All in all, October in Florida’s Forgotten Coast is worth remembering.

Plein Air Paintout in NW Florida

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

Art enthusiasts are invited to travel to NW Florida for the 2011 Plein Air Paintout, May 13-22.

Come to NW Florida for the the Plein Air Paintout, May 13-22, 2011.

Plein Air painting first captured the hearts of artists in 19th century Europe. John Constable was one great artist to leave the studio behind. He painted the natural world as he saw it, when he saw it. Simple as it sounds, it was revolutionary. Other artists also felt the call to paint every day life and the world as it was. Plein Air painting was the predecessor to a movement recognized by all – Impressionism.

True plein air paintings are created on location; ideally, there is little or no work done in the studio at all. Artists much capture the sun as it rises or sets, finding the right colors in a matter of minutes. It is challenging, but the rewards are many.

Florida’s Forgotten Coast Plein Air Invitational spans ten days and includes 5 exhibits, daily demonstrations, workshops, public receptions, and art sales. Although specific artists are invited to participate, many other artists also set up their easels up and down the coast.

NW Florida Bed and Breakfasts welcome both artists and art enthusiasts. The Plein Air Paintout spans several communities on the Forgotten Coast, including but not limited to Cape San Blas, Port St. Joe, and Apalachicola.

Please see Plein Air Paintout for additional information.
