Zen Garden Art Market: January
January 25th – 9 a.m.
Zen Garden Art Market
Starting in 2020, Zen Garden will also be home to a curated art market. Once a month, the Zen Garden Art Market will showcase new and upcoming local artists and help promote talent by exposing their work. The goal of the Zen Garden Art Market is to help publicize new and diverse talent that wouldn’t normally be seen in the area. It gives artists a chance to get exposure and experience on what it would be like to distribute and share their work with likeminded people within the community. Every market will also benefit a charity organization of choice. We will have an information booth on the organization and collect donations. Artists will also have the option to donate a percentage of their sales to the organization. We have selected Alaqua Animal Refuge as the organization of choice for January.

Oyster Bash 2020
January 25th – 1 to 5 p.m.
Dive Lab
The annual Oyster Bash is a locals’ favorite. All you can eat Gulf fresh oysters, low country boil full of Gulf fresh shrimp included in all ticket sales. Craft beer for purchase. All you can eat Hamburgers and hot dogs for the kids (and kids at heart). The Oyster Bash is the primary fundraiser for Panama City Beach’s only museum – The Man in the Sea Museum – the revenue generated at this annual event is critical to its survival. Hurricane Michael caused us to cancel Oyster Bash 2019; we need your support to make 2020 the best year yet!
