On March 30 - 31, 2018, Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival is honored to host
Operation Song, “A Musical Salute to our Veterans” weekend.
After working with AHERO and their amazing program during the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival this past October, it was a no brainer to see the opportunities we could provide for our Veterans by working together. It filled our heart to see that we were striving toward the same goal of bringing enjoyment to others. The PBSF does it by celebrating the creators of music that have the ability to express emotion and healing through song. AHERO provides outdoor adventure and fellowship to Veterans who have suffered greatly on behalf of all Americans.
This union led us to an amazing weekend event called Operation Song, “A Musical Salute to our Veterans. “ There will be music, workshops, a 5K run, a meet and greet with special guest speakers. It will be a jammed packed weekend that you won’t want to miss.
The recipients of the proceeds from this event will be presented to AHERO (America's Heroes Enjoying Recreation Outdoors), whose goal is to heal the physical and psychological wounds of war and military service. And to Operation Song, a well know organization that pairs professional songwriters with Veterans, active military and their families to help them tell their stories through song and to also heal the psychological wounds of war. The goals are the same … to support our Veterans and give them back the opportunities they deserve.
We are delighted to announce the host venues for the weekend. Pensacola Beach Community Church will be the host for Friday with the grand finale to be held at the Elks Lodge #497 on Saturday. Together we all are striving to bring awareness to our disabled Veterans and provide the help that is needed for them to enjoy a better life.

The Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival celebrates the creators of the music! Music education is an important part of our Festival. One of our goals is to bring the songwriters into the classroom to provide instruction and mentoring about the art of music. 2018 brings great news! We are so excited to announce that The Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival has joined hands with the Nashville Country Music Hall of Fame which will be hosting a workshop in three of our local schools.
Welcome and thanks for taking the journey with us! Let the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival introduce you to the songwriters who create the songs that inspire our daily lives. Songs create moods that can put smiles on your faces or tears in your eyes. There are so many emotions that live within us each and every day that a song sometimes has a way of healing.
We are excited to become a sponsor of the Northwest Florida Guardian Ad Litem.
