Before your favorite team takes the field in the Fall of 2013, bring the entire family to the white, sandy beaches of Gulf Shores & Orange Beach, AL for the 2nd SEC BeachFest, a championship celebration that will kick-off the 2013 college football season. The event will take place the weekend of August 15-18, 2013. What better way to celebrate the conference’s storied history of athletic and academic achievement than where SEC families go to play?
Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism became an official corporate sponsor of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) in July of 2011. The unique sponsorship initiative, which was created as a result of the efforts to overcome the 2010 oil spill, allows the Tourism bureau to partner with the SEC to restore the region to a prominent vacation destination for families across the southeast.
