Attractions

  • Pensacola Museum of Art

    Address:
    407 S Jefferson St, Pensacola, FL 32502, USA .

    In 1906 the City of Pensacola made plans to construct a two-story building to house the City Jail, City Courthouse, Police Department, and Shore Patrol.  Built in Spanish Revival Style, it was the first permanent jail in the community. 

    In 1954, members of the local chapter of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) envisioned a venue to exhibit traveling art exhibitions, offer art classes for both children and adults, and provide a community space for public meetings, lectures, films and other cultural presentations. The Art Association (which became the Pensacola Museum of Art in 1982) purchased the building in 1988.

    In 2016, the Pensacola Museum of Art entered into a gift agreement with the University of West Florida to transfer the museum to the university. The PMA is now part of the University of West Florida Historic Trust, which maintains 30 historic properties in northwest Florida. As part of a complex of 11 interpreted sites in downtown Pensacola, the PMA benefits from collaborative programming and operations with the larger organization.

  • Community Maritime Park

    Address:
    301 West Main Street, Pensacola, FL, USA .

    The Vince J. Whibbs, Sr. Community Maritime Park is a multi-use, public-private park development on Pensacola’s waterfront.

    BLUE WAHOOS STADIUM

    Accommodating over 5,000 people, the stadium is home to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos baseball team, the AA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds.

    HUNTER AMPHITHEATER

    The Randall K. and Martha A. Hunter Amphitheater overlooks beautiful Pensacola Bay. The amphitheater portion of the park supports a large, covered stage (approximately 50′ x 70′), a “Back of House” facility that supports two dressing room spaces, and grass seating accommodating up to 5,000.

    FESTIVAL GROUNDS

    The Community Maritime Park is Pensacola’s newest festival facility. This area offers literally thousands of square feet of event space. The space is laid out with walkways conducive to a large-scale festival. The area supports 10+ electrical pedestals – scattered for easy access, as well as water and sewer hook-ups for food and specialty vendors. This area can also be utilized in conjunction with the amphitheater and/or the exhibition grounds to support multi-activity events or multi-stage music festivals.

    EXHIBITION GROUNDS

    This green space measures just under NFL football field dimensions (approximately 127′ x 430′). That’s enough space for a car show, a boat show, or a myriad of competitive sports fields. The mostly level field does have limited access to electricity and water. And it’s location just west of the Community Maritime Park Stadium makes it very visible from Main Street. This open field offers unlimited event possibilities.
