Gulf Coast Science Festival | Pensacola MESS Hall

Gulf Coast Science Festival

Join us March 8-17 for the inaugural Gulf Coast Science Festival! This Festival will feature a variety of science- and technology-related activities, all with the goal of inspiring curiosity, experimentation, and creative problem solving by both adults and children.

Expo Day

Make plans to join us March 17, 2018 at Seville Square where organizations from across our region will provide engaging activities that make science accessible and fun. Teachers, plan to bring your students on March 16 for a special field trip day!

Satellite Events

Throughout the week there will be additional events hosted by organizations in our community, from Build and Brew night to a Festival of Flight. Full event listing will be posted as information is finalized.


Does your organization want to participate? Fill out our Booth Interest Form and let us know more about you. Have another idea? Email us to learn more about how to get involved!

We are also seeking sponsors for the Festival. This year we have a matching grant that will help us get the Festival off the ground, but we need community involvement. Please contact us for more information about being a sponsor.
