Since 1985, this 11 day music festival features more than 200 legendary and upcoming songwriters. Join us for an unforgettable musical journey where the white sand beaches meet the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. During this festival, Grammy Award winning songwriters and the up and coming stars of tomorrow come into the spotlight to perform original songs in multiple locations in beautiful Perdido Key and Pensacola, Florida and Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama. Festival attendees enjoy an up close and personal concert experience and are often able to learn the stories behind the songs as told by the original author. The festival will take place on two consecutive weekends.
