Gulf Shores & Orange Beach

Snowbird Events

Each year, Alabama's Gulf Coast plays host to our winter visitors, affectionately known as "snowbirds." Our snowbirds are hardly retiring - they stay busy with a variety of activities like state club meetings, fishing tournaments, fundraisers, day trips, golfing and volunteering. 

Of course, lazy days still have their appeal. It's up to you.

The winter months offer all types of entertainment from symphonies to theatre, Jazz to Dixieland, you name it. Festivals, parades and art exhibits are aplenty. The Calendar of Events will help you decide how to spend your time while visiting Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
