The next major event will be the Ormond Beach Live Original Music & Art Festival, hosted by the Songwriters Showcases of America. This event will take place on September 30th and October 1st, featuring over 100 original music artists over 12 stages and 70+ booths and vendors.

Next, along the Halifax River, will be the 61st annual Halifax Art Festival. Spanning November 5th and 6th, the festival will feature over 200 artists from around the country, with music, food, entertainment, and kids' activities.

After that will be the Greek Festival, held at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church on November 9th through 12th. Here, area residents will get to immerse themselves in Greek culture, food, and entertainment while perusing Greek marketplaces and souvenir shops.

Following that is the Riverfest Seafood Festival, taking place at Rockefeller Gardens in Ormond Beach. Guests will get to enjoy fresh fish and craft beer with live entertainment, with a fishing clinic for kids. This festival is being held on November 18th and 19th.

Happening concurrently is the 30th Annual Fall Festival of the Arts, held on Woodland Boulevard in DeLand.

Finally, the 50th Annual Daytona Turkey Run will be happening on November 23rd through 26th at Daytona International Speedway. The last major event at the speedway during the fall season, the turkey run will assemble classic cars from around the area for an extra special anniversary.
