The waterfront location and festival experience gives attendees a taste of what you can expect when you visit Port Lavaca – a welcoming atmosphere, friendly conversation, a great view of the water, cold drinks, great food and shopping, and of course, flip-flops!
Visitors are encouraged to stay the weekend and explore all that Port Lavaca has to offer, including boating and saltwater fishing, RVing and camping, historical site-seeing, birding and a white sandy beach with a 2200-foot boardwalk.
This year’s festival will kick off Friday evening, August 29th, with a Street Dance on the Bayfront Peninsula with music by Night Moves. There will be live music all day on Saturday, August 30th, with performances by Riptide, Kayla Ray, TipJar Romeo, The Scott Taylor Band and the festival’s headliner, Bart Crow!
Saturday morning, gates open at 10:00 a.m. You can expect the best in food and arts and crafts, professional sand sculptor, Fred Mallett, a huge kid’s zone with a splash pad, rides, games/prizes and face painting. Contests include a Children’s Sand Sculpting Contest (new this year!), a Horseshoe & Washer Tournament and the Annual Fling Flong Contest.
The festival will include an IBCA-sanctioned barbecue cook-off with a $10,000 guaranteed payout! Admission to The Flip Flop Festival will be FREE!
Whether you live in, near or far from the community of Port Lavaca, we invite you to spend Labor Day weekend with us. Flip-flops welcome!
