Located just north of Live Oak, the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park is a one-of-a-kind music park and premier campground nestled on the shady banks of the historic, tea-colored Suwannee River in North Florida. The Spirit of the Suwannee is proud to host a variety of events throughout the year.
The Suwannee River Jam tradition includes two stages of performances over four days, thousands and thousands of excited fans holding reunions with family and friends, barbecues, golf cart parades, hiking, jam sessions all over the park around campfires into the early morning hours, canoe trips on the famous Suwannee River at the SOSMP, bicycling, trying out all the festival foods, shopping the vendors and Arts and Crafts Village’s quaint stores and visiting the SOS Café and Restaurant where the walls are hand-painted in rustic Suwannee River scenes.
During the Jam, fans come from near and far to hear and see country artists, get their photos taken with their favorite artist during fan club meet and greets while making new friends and jamming to the sounds of America’s best country music artists. The fun is indescribable, the experience can be life-changing and the memories…well, the memories last a lifetime and are re-visited often. Weddings are not uncommon as a result of two people meeting at the Jam and falling in love…and the chapel is always ready over on Rees Lake so the happy couple can tie the knot! Shucks, the SOSMP even has someone who can perform the ceremony at a moment’s notice! Just be sure you’ve got the license in advance!

MerleFest, considered one of the premier music festivals in the country, serves as an annual homecoming for musicians and music fans.
Held on the campus of Wilkes Community College in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, MerleFest was founded in 1988 in memory of the late Eddy Merle Watson, son of American music legend Doc Watson.
MerleFest is a celebration of ‘traditional plus’ music, a unique mix of music based on the traditional, roots-oriented sounds of the Appalachian region, including bluegrass and old-time music, and expanded to include Americana, country, blues, rock and many other styles.
The festival hosts numerous artists, performing on 13 stages during the course of the four-day event. The annual event has become the primary fundraiser for the WCC Foundation, funding scholarships, capital projects and other educational needs.
We are about the MUSIC, MOMENTS and MEMORIES!
NOTE: This event was not held in 2020 due to COVID-19.

April 30-May 3, 2020 (Palm Coast, FL)
Unlike other musical festivals where audience members listen to song after song from a full band, the Palm Coast Songwriters Festival provides a unique, more intimate experience between the artist and the listener as the songwriters will often share the meaning behind their lyrics.
For the 2020 festival, more than 25 artists will be performing. This 4-day event allows the audience to go ‘behind the curtain’ and see the faces and hear the songs and stories behind some of the most popular songs of yesteryear and playing on the radio today. These artists will be performing their hits for festival attendees.
In 2019, Grammy-nominated, platinum selling, billboard hit songwriters from Nashville treated local guests and many attendees from out of town to awesome performances and insights into their music during the second annual Palm Coast Songwriters Festival in May. Thank you to everyone who came to the festival! We appreciate the artists, our sponsors and partners and the fans who made the Palm Coast Songwriters Festival 2019 unforgettable. We look forward to seeing everyone this year with our expanded lineup of HIT songwriters
