Visit Port Aransas | The Best Time of The Year!
Ask anyone who’s been to Port Aransas and they’ll tell you September through October really is the best time of year to visit. Why? We’ve got better weather and fewer crowds. But, best of all, Beachtoberfest is back. Which mean six weeks of family fun is back too.
During Beachtoberfest, live music fanatics, certified foodies, and history buffs will all feel right at home during their time away from home.
Stroll through the island streets in September and you’ll be sure to hear the best live music on the coast. Enjoy an afternoon of beer tastings while you get ready for an evening of entertainment at the Port A Live Music Fest that has a tune for every adventure.
Explore Port A at the beginning of October and watch top Texas chefs battle for culinary supremacy at the Texas Super Chef Throwdown Series as Port Aransas hosts a super qualifier to the world’s largest food competition. Later in the month, lace up your running shoes and wear your favorite Halloween costume for the Beach Pumpkin Hustle, the island’s inaugural 5K run. Then, head over to Port A’s Brew N’ Que for the island’s first annual beer festival and barbeque competition.
Beachtober is back. Where are you? Start making plans today to visit Port A this fall.
