Daphne AL Auto, Home & Business Insurance
Located in the heart of the Eastern Shore, the ‘Jubilee City’ has grown from the city’s incorporation in 1927 to the largest city in Baldwin County today. Daphne has become known as a Community of Opportunity, largely in part to the tremendous growth we have seen in recent years. The success can be attributed to the strong sense of community, which is the culmination of our heritage, southern charm, recreational opportunities, and economic success combined with our most valuable asset – the hospitality and beauty of Daphne.
Daphne is known as the Jubilee City because it is the site of the rare “jubilees,” events in which an unusually large number of crabs, fish, and shrimp become trapped in shallow waters along the coastline. Daphne is governed by a mayor and eight-member city council.
The city of Daphne has numerous public facilities, including an 18,000 square foot library, a recreational center, a civic center, and Bayfront Park. The Daphne History Museum, housed in the 1858 Daphne Old Methodist Church, features exhibits on the cultural history of the city and its surroundings. The city also hosts a number of events featuring live music and local cuisine and seafood. Major events include the Eastern Shore Jubilee Festival held annually in September, the Gulf Coast Zydeco Music and Crawfish Festival held annually in May, Taste of the Eastern Shore, held annually in August, and Summer Art in the Park. The Eastern Shore Jubilee Festival sees a turnout of approximately 30,000 to 35,000 visitors annually. Source
