Trebeaché, the latest venture by the creative team behind Stinky’s Fish Camp, is hosting an all-new food and music festival that aims to really capture the spirit of the 30A area.

The 30A Blue Crab Festival will be held October 8 at Trebeaché in Blue Mountain Beach. The festival, which runs from noon to 8, includes live music, local and regional art and local blue crab prepared in almost all the ways you could imagine.

“We really wanted to create something that highlights the 30A lifestyle,” said Jim Richard, owner of Trebeaché and Stinky’s Fish Camp.

Entry to the festival is a $5 donation to the South Walton Artificial Reef Association.

Entry includes live music by Forrest Williams Band; Dread Clampitt; Billy Garrett and The Funk Disciples; Old Bull Young Bull featuring Duke Bardwell and Kyle Ogle; and Franko Washboard Jackson and The Steenos.

The event also includes an art walkabout, cooking demos and tastings, games, live stream of college football games and kids activities including a bounce house and slide.

A special menu starring the delicious blue crab will be available. Try crab pretty much any and all ways: boiled and fried, crab cakes, crab bisque, crab gumbo, crab jambalaya, crab rolls and crab dip.

After the festival, a late-night after party featuring the New Orleans Suspects kicks off at 8 p.m. upstairs at Trebeaché. On Sunday, the 30A Blue Crab Fest finale party will feature Eric Lindell. Both are separately ticketed events.

This event is sponsored by The 30A Company, Mojo Sportswear, Nick’s Seafood, Sterling Resorts, Redfish Village and The Beach Chair Company.
