Daytona Beach Events

If you like gorgeous beaches and loads of fun things to do, you will love Daytona Beach which is world famous for its beautiful beaches and its unbeatable events!

The recently renovated Daytona International Speedway is home to the Daytona 500 – NASCAR’s most prestigious event. Daytona International Speedway also hosts the largest combined car show and swap meet in the United States – the Turkey Run. It showcases over 6,000 vintage classic, muscle and race cars and trucks for show and sale, more 2,500 swap meet spaces, plus food and entertainment.

Daytona Beach is also famous for its motorcycle rallies. If bikes are your thing, come during Bike Week in March or Biketoberfest in the fall. During both action-packed events, Main Street is overflowing with vendors, the drinks flow freely and the music is live.

Cultural events are also a large part of the Daytona Beach event scene. Halifax Art Festival, the second oldest continual art festival in Florida, features hundreds of artisans from across the country in early November; and Daytona Beach Bandshell, a scenic, historic music venue, provides free beachside concerts throughout the year.

And here is an interesting fact: Daytona is referred to as the “Festival Capital of Florida” because so many festivals, including the Celtic Festival, Festa Italiana, the Greek Festival and Festival of the Arts, are held in Daytona Beach!

Daytona Beach is also the perfect place to celebrate the holidays. Take a holiday tour, and then ring in the New Year right with an extravagant New Year’s Eve Celebration on Main Street. There is always something fun to do in Daytona Beach!
