Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival

Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival

The Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival is an annual seafood and arts festival held in Niceville, Florida, United States, on the second-to-last weekend of every October. Visitors and booth openers come from as far away as Louisiana. The main attractions are music, food, especially fried mullet, and many kinds of arts and crafts.

This festival is named after the mullet, a fish found in abundance in the local waters. While commonly seen at the festival, the mullet haircut is not the origin of the name.

The festival was founded by Walter Francis Spence Jr. in 1976. It lasts three days, starting Friday afternoon and ending Sunday after dark. Alcohol is not served on Sunday. In recent years, the festival has typically had attendance over 100,000 for the weekend.
