Deland, Florida’s 20th Annual Original Music Festival November 7, 2020


November 7, 2020 is the date you need to save for the 20th annual Historic DeLand Original Music & Art Festival. Sponsored by Songwriter Showcase of America, 130 original musical acts on 23 stages throughout the city’s core rain or shine. Awards are given in five categories: Song of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Band of the Year, Musician of the Year and Most Unique Style.

This is a full day event, rain or shine and full of surprises. It seems every restaurant, every block and every alley in downtown DeLand seems to have a stage with incredible musicians. A program is a must to navigate the day as 23 stages host performers simultaneously.

I have addended this festival in the past and found it inspiring and an absolute joyful display of original live music! Get out and stroll the historic city and be ready to be surprised around every turn!
