Daytona Blues Festival
October 6-8, 2017
The annual Daytona Blues Festival has rapidly grown into a family-friendly musical tradition throughout Central Florida. The festival features dozens of up-and-coming artists as well as some of the biggest names in blues music. Held at historic Jackie Robinson Ballpark (known as “The Jack” to locals), the three-day festival brings thousands of visitors to Daytona Beach each year for fun, sun, surf and, of course, music.
The ballpark has a seating capacity of 4,200, including seats, bleachers and wheelchair accessible sections. Jackie Robinson ballpark is transformed into a world-class music festival with covered seating, eclectic food vendors, craft beer selections and other reasonably priced offerings.
Aside from three full days of music at the ballpark, a welcome party is hosted Thursday evening as well as Friday, Saturday and Sunday night after-parties at local bars and restaurants. The festival is aligned with the Halifax Health Foundation to raise funds for women and children’s healthcare. Tens of thousands of dollars have already been donated to purchase state-of-the-art beds for Halifax Health’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
