Gulf County Song Contest

The Gulf County Tourist Development Council is hosting a first-of-its-kind Song Contest to promote Gulf County Tourism. The song will be based on criteria to ensure it follows Gulf County Brand Standards. The contest is free. We are looking for a song to connect our locals and visitors. Something that everyone who loves Gulf County can rally around. An anthem for how we live and interact with our waters, community, and nature.                                   

Music has a long history of connecting people. For generations, musicians have played on our rustic stages in Gulf County, Florida. Sharing their voices and talent with locals and visitors. You get a feeling in your soul when you listen to an original song while watching the sun sink down over St. Joseph Bay. That feeling connects you to what it means to love Gulf County. In Gulf County, we stand for what is real. Genuine. Here everything flows with the current. Gulf County is unexpected, unpretentious, and comfortable. We are designed by nature. Here, we are also connected to nature. Their symphony plays throughout our lives every day. The call of a seagull, the crash of the waves, or the buzz of a busy bee are all a part of the orchestra that makes Gulf County special.
