Welcome and thanks for taking the journey with us! Let the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival introduce you to the songwriters who create the songs that inspire our daily lives.
Songs create moods that can put smiles on your faces or tears in your eyes. There are so many emotions that live within us each and every day that a song sometimes has a way of healing.
Hear the stories that inspired the birth of these songs. You will be surprised to learn that the artist on the radio might not be the songwriter. The variety of songwriters is as different as the grains of sand that cover our beautiful pristine beaches. Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival is your chance to meet the writers and hear the stories behind the songs.
Like the marriage between the lyrics and the melody of a song, the marriage between the beautiful white sands of Pensacola Beach and the songwriters make this the perfect combination to kick back and enjoy Pensacola Beach September 29 - October 2!
The Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival celebrates the creators of the music! Music education is an important part of our Festival. One of our goals is to bring the songwriters into the classroom to provide instruction and mentoring about the art of music.
2016 brings great news! We are so excited to announce that The Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival has joined hands with the Nashville Country Music Hall of Fame which will be hosting a workshop in three of our local schools. The program will include elementary and middle school students whose interest is in creative writing or music. Children will be encouraged to participate in the process of creating their own songs as well as taking the stage to perform their creations. This will give young students a chance to have a hands on experience with a professional writer in the art of songwriting.
Another goal we strive to achieve is to bring awareness to the general public. These few days will give you opportunities to not only hear the songs that you've danced to and fallen in love to, but also to meet and greet the songwriters that made it all possible. We appeal to all genres of music and endorse both professional and amateur songwriters.
For the 2016 Pensacola Beach Songwriters’ Festival, we welcome back many of last year’s songwriters along with several new arrivals. You’re sure to hear songs you are familiar with, along with some new favorites. Check out the schedule by Stages and make your plans to attend!
