Daytona Beach is an iconic beach destination with 23 miles of beautiful coastline, but it is so much more. It is located smack dab in the middle of Florida’s “Fun Coast” region, so put on your party pants and get ready for some spectacular events in 2019!
We kick off every great year with an extravagant New Year’s Eve Celebration on Main Street, complete with live music, vendors peddling fun and food and a spectacular fireworks display.
The Daytona 500 is the most prestigious race in NASCAR, and it is scheduled for February 17th in 2019. Watch NASCAR’s most seasoned professionals compete in a battle of skill and determination in Daytona’s largest and most celebrated event of the year.
Then feel the low rumble of hundreds of bikes during bike week in Daytona Beach from March 8th through the 17th in 2019. This event promises plenty of exciting entertainment all week long.
Daytona does the summer up right with the Family Festival and Hippiefest in June – both offering plenty of music, food and fun. Celebrate July 4th with a free Bandshell concert event and fireworks on the beach or at the Coke Zero 400 July 4th weekend at Daytona International Speedway.
Some of country music’s biggest stars perform throughout Memorial Day weekend at the Country 500 Festival. If music is your thing, don’t worry. Daytona offers a variety of options, including the three-day Daytona Blues Festival in October.
