January 17-19 — Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Weekend

It started out as a pretty cool little idea about bringing world-class songwriting talents to South Walton during January (a slower month that visitors typically don’t associate with a weekend trip the beach).

What few people expected was just how many of those world-class music industry talents (from Nashville and around the globe) would jump aboard so quickly and enthusiastically, and just a few years later, 30A Songwriters Festival is unquestionably one of South Walton’s most successful annual events.

Staged by Walton County’s Cultural Arts Alliance, in conjunction with a multitude of local venues eager to host the music-loving masses, 30A Songwriters Festival is as much of a hit as the #1 tunes written by so many festival performers.

Pick an intimate venue and sit in silent awe as Grammy-winning writers and musicians take the stage, or, circle all of your must-sees on the festival schedule and make your way up and down 30A in search of the perfect soundtrack.

TIP: Be sure to attend at least one songwriter’s workshop to learn how some of the most talented writers in the industry go from creative spark to Top 10 list.
