What Is the 30A Songwriters Festival?

  • A Great Way to See Your Favorite Artists and Discover New Ones

Many people come to the 30A Songwriters Festival to see some of their favorite artists perform, but it’s also a great way to discover other, lesser-known musicians. Each January, the festival brings a stellar lineup of Americana, country, blues, alternative, and folk songwriters and performers to South Walton County. Normally, there are over 100 songwriters and close to 300 performances over the course of the event’s three-day duration. Be sure to check this year’s lineup to see who is coming to town!

  • A Fundraiser

The 30A Songwriters Festival isn’t just a great time; it’s a fundraiser, too! All proceeds from the festival benefit the local nonprofit, Cultural Arts Alliance, which assists in perpetuating the area’s musical and creative excellence. After all, 30A is much more than a beautiful beach destination. The festival is a critical part of the Cultural Art Alliance’s mission, so it’s an event you can feel great about attending.

  • A Weekend of Exceptional Food and Drink

In addition to non-stop concerts at various South Walton County venues, the event features plenty of tasty refreshments. On the first Friday and Saturday of the festival, award-winning guest chefs offer four-course dinners to V.I.P. ticket holders. During many of the festival’s performances, complimentary food, wine, and cocktails are offered to V.I.P. attendees. Additionally, certain local bars and eateries offer transportation packages and food/drink specials throughout the weekend.
