Founded 100 years
ago…Santa Rosa Beach prepares for
Santa Rosa Beach Centennial Celebration Steering Committee is now well into the planning process with support from Walton County Commissioner Cecilia Jones, other county representatives, The Walton Area Chamber of Commerce, The Walton County Tourist Development Council and the Economic Development Council.
The Walton County Board of County Commissioners has issued a resolution designating the month of September 2010 as Santa Rosa Beach Centennial Celebration Month. We will celebrate the history and the founding of the old Town of Santa Rosa which originally sat on Hogtown Bayou. A huge celebration is planned for Saturday and Sunday September 11th and 12th, 2010 at Gulf Place located at the corner of Scenic Highway 30A and county road 393 in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
The focus Saturday will be about where we are today in Santa Rosa Beach and Sunday will be about our history.
Saturday, gates are open from 10am-9pm and will be filled with music presented by local bands and hopefully, some surprise headliners.
Sunday the gates are open from Noon-6pm and you will be entertained by folk music.
On Saturday and Sunday, Gulf Place will be filled with local folk artisans, artists, vendors selling their wares, performers and demonstrators.
Attendees will be greeted as they
enter the grounds with large displays of old maps of what the area looked like
plus early photos of the community, pioneering families and the steamboats that
brought them to Santa Rosa.
Participants will be provided a 10x10 space on the grounds at Gulf Place. There is a $35.00 fee for the two days for those who will be selling their wares. There is no fee for those only conducting demonstrations. Participant space is limited and the deadline for submittal is July 31st, 2010. You can find the form and submit from the website: srb100.com | Santa Rosa Beach Centennial Celebration. Participants will be chosen by the Santa Rosa Beach Centennial Celebration Committee.
Throughout the month of September 2010, locals and merchants across Walton County will join together to celebrate Santa Rosa Beach’s 100th birthday. This is a non-profit civic celebration, and there is no fee to participate. Our goal is to help drive traffic to local businesses who want to help commemorate this momentous occasion. It’s easy to participate. Simply complete the on-line form on the website www.srb100.com in the Merchants section and include a special “centennial”-related promotion or offer that your business will honor during the entire month of September 2010. Ideally, the promotion will be related to a birthday party and/or the number “100”. For example, perhaps a restaurant would offer a “$1.00” dessert or drink special all month long with any purchase; or your 100th customer each day would be entered to win a special prize at the end of the month; or you would offer a “$100 off” discount for a professional service. Ultimately, what your business offers, and how you execute it, is entirely up to you.
The website will be updated periodically with information, schedules, new photos, more history, videos, etc, so please ensure you check it frequently.
If you want to join in the fun and volunteer for the weekend celebration or have any questions about the event, contact Johndra Culp at 850-622-5815.

The Santa Rosa Beach 100 Celebration will feature today's great venues and music while highlighting our area's history. Rodney Williams, resident of SRB, holds a picture of his grandfather Hughey Brown enjoying watermelon on the front porch of the old Santa Rosa Hotel. This two day event, Sept. 11 and 12, will be lots of fun. It will also be informative for those desiring to know more about what makes South Walton so special. Vendors have one week to get their applications in to participate. A great kickoff to our Fall season.

Hey all. I am going to stay at Gulf Place the weekend of this great event. And in essence, I am not paying for my stay- because there is this cool deal where you can get a $250 gift card to Southwest if you stay three nights in participating 30A rentals. I included a link for more information. I was planning a trip to Nashville, so I feel like I am getting my 'staycation' for free! Thought you might want to take advantage. The offer is good through Sept 30- so spread the word. I think it is a great opportunity to make my money work for me- hope you will too.
