Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is a one-of-a-kind projection art festival where artists from around the world use the latest digital technologies to project their original art works onto the white walls of Alys Beach. Sometimes referred to as “Photon Bombing,” “Guerilla Projection” or “Urban Projection,” underground artists around the globe have been using the latest design, animation, and projection technologies for many years to cast dynamic images onto skyscrapers and other urban structures as a means of artistic expression. Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is a festival geared towards bringing these artists’ works together in one place to celebrate and showcase their unique talents. The scenic 30A community of Alys Beach, located along the northwest Florida coastline, gives artists a large-scale blank canvas to explore the intersection of art and architecture, while creating entirely new art forms. Once darkness falls, the stark-white walls of Alys Beach glow with dozens of dazzling original art projections.

This year’s festival has been reimagined as an immersive, drive-through experience as we continue to follow the CDC’s guidelines for social safety. Tickets are available to purchase here, and must be pre-purchased as they will not be sold at the door. Each ticket will be issued with a designated time slot, limited to 20 cars per time slot, and blocked in intervals to allow for the safe control of traffic flow. In the interest of safety, pedestrians, golf carts, and other modes of non-vehicular traffic will not be permitted. Tickets for standard vehicles are $80; tickets for vehicles with 8 or more passengers are $150.

Nestled amongst the pristine white sands and sparkling turquoise waters of northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast sits Alys Beach, a fully-bespoke, luxury lifestyle and vacation experience – a seaside destination where life is refreshed. Through art and architecture, nature and design, community and tranquility, life is distilled down to what matters.

Designed by planning and architecture firm DPZ CoDesign (Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company), the elements that comprise Alys Beach are carefully choreographed to create a New Urbanist community built for relationships. The vision for Alys Beach is crafted to celebrate the public realm of streets, parks, pedestrian paths, and great civic buildings within the context of the natural landscape including 1,500 square feet of white-sand beaches. The striking architectural language combines the harmonious forms of Bermudan architecture, and Moorish and Mediterranean details, with the gracious character of Antiguan- and Guatemalan-inspired courtyard living. The first community in the world to meet the prestigious standard of Fortified For Safer Living, all homes are built to Florida’s Green Home Designation Standard. 

With all of its 158 acres within a short walk of the beach and designed for engaging and comfortable access to the town center’s shops and restaurants, Alys Beach is truly an unparalleled experience. Alys Beach has long attracted homeowners and vacation guests with an eye for distinctive design and detail, and the town’s signature events serve to reinforce a sense of being transported to a place of luxury found within the balance of beauty, simplicity, and grace.  To a place where life is not just lived, it is defined.
