2024 Culture Crawl

The Carrabelle History Museum hosted the Carrabelle Culture Crawl on Saturday, March 16, 2024, 10 am to 3 pm. This cultural event is a free celebration of amazing local culture, art, music, history, food, and fun in the heart of downtown Carrabelle. 

Live music and entertainment was enjoyed on the streets of Carrabelle, with Florida folk music, classic country, modern songs, and favorite oldies. A variety of musicians performed outdoors for all to enjoy including Florida Folk musician, Frank Lindamood, the Bog Lilies, Boats a Rock’n with Susan David, Cody Barber and Tom Magnam. People danced to the tunes spun by DJ Beanie Baby.

Visitors interacted with the fun, costumed characters from the Fishy Fashion Show wandering the streets. These walking photo ops are a fan-favorite at the Crawl. 

At the Crawl, local artists and artisans, as well as several internationally acclaimed artists, were hosted by Forgotten Coast en Plein Air. There was art to view at a variety of shops and galleries. Guests were encouraged to come early to experience the Forgotten Coast en Plein Air Quickdraw Competition with up to 75 artists capturing Carrabelle and creating art as spectators watch. The always popular public art drawing and coloring activity was hung in storefront windows. Sidewalk chalk will be available to allow their creativity to flow.  Kids and families enjoyed making their own take home art with the handmade card activity. Be sure to stroll over to see Carrabelle’s two large, stunning murals!

Returning this year was a Car Cruise-In on Marine Street with a variety of beautiful classic, vintage, and even modern cars to the Crawl! 

Carrabelle’s delicious food offerings were celebrated as local restaurants and cafes served fresh seafood, award-winning crab cakes, bulgogi, amazing pizzas, salads, authentic deli sandwiches, egg rolls, burgers, and more. Plus joining the Crawl this year, was A Train Stop food truck with grouper sandwiches, wings and more.

Guests enjoyed the challenge of the Carrabelle Scavenger Hunt. For each location, a fun clue was provided. The scavenger hunt is a great way to learn fun facts about Carrabelle’s history that might be unknown.
