The 30-A Songwriters Festival has been slated for Jan. 18 to Jan. 20 with more than 250 performances and 125 songwriters expected to be in attendance.

The festival is sponsored by the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County and presented by Visit South Walton.

The three-day event takes place in venues ranging from intimate listening rooms to spacious outdoor amphitheaters amid a backdrop of brilliant white sand beaches and turquoise waters along South Walton's Scenic Highway 30A in Northwest Florida. 

“It’s a fairly young event, it’s just in its fourth year, but we’ve got some really great performers,” said Jon Ervin with Visit South Walton. “Everybody’s there for the music and its different than most festivals.”

While several gatherings can include thousands of visitors, Ervin said the Songwriters Festival offers its patrons a more intimate experience. He said the popular event sells out early, so booking now is key.

“This is really a great way to start the year,” Ervin said. “There will be great food, beverages and talented artists. It really makes for a great weekend.”
