Gulfport invites you to the 19th Annual Geckofest, celebrating the end of summer with its largest festival of the year, honoring this waterfront village’s unofficial mascot and favorite reptile, the Gecko!
The streets of the waterfront village will be filled with live music on two stages, hundreds of food, art and craft vendors, kids’ activities, and up close and personal street performances by a bevy of acrobats, magicians, daredevils, dancers, aerialists, escape artists, fire eaters, balloon artists and costumed characters.
This year’s theme, chosen by public voting on the Gecko Ball Facebook page, is “Geckos of The Round Table”! Think King Arthur, Merlin, Lady Guinevere, Sir Lancelot and the Sword in the Stone. Festival goers are always encouraged to arrive in costume. Geckofest will also feature a quirky walking parade, colorful costume contests, and the ever-popular end-of-the-day dueling street dances that wrap up this light-hearted send-off to summer.
Parking and admission to Geckofest is complimentary and the event is pet and family-friendly.
