GULFPORT, FL: The 19th Annual Geckofest arrives on August 31st, celebrating the end of summer with its largest festival of the year and honoring this waterfront village’s unofficial mascot, the Gecko! This year’s theme, chosen by public voting, is “Geckos of The Round Table”!
The festival is excited to announce the addition of the Caddy’s Gulfport Stage and welcomes back the beloved Blueberry Patch Stage. The line-up for 2019 includes 12 hours of live music with bands including; Ari & The Alibis, Ella Jet and Future Soul, Gulfport Swamp Opera, Tropico Blvd., Elysian Sex Drive, After Midnight, Razin’ Jane, Savii and Sean, The Foundation, The Laura Shepherd show with Lucy Flute, and Project Free’s Solar Flair.
Geckofest tradition is known to include professional strolling and stationary street performers, who bring ooohs!!! and ahhhs!!! to Beach Blvd. S. Volunteers are often invited to step right up and participate in a magic trick, stunt or some other wacky act. You’ll want to have your selfie stick on hand to capture the moments that’ll will make you laugh, gasp and applaud.
Festivalgoers, local businesses and groups are always encouraged to arrive in costume and join in the wacky walking parade at 6:00 PM. A costume contest for kids and adults will take place following the parade.
Purchases from GeckoFest vendors, as well as Gulfport’s own shops, galleries and restaurants support local, home-grown small businesses, so please come on “buy” and support small business!
Parking and admission to Geckofest is complimentary and the event is pet and family-friendly.
