Since 1984, the Annual Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival has entertained music and beach lovers for 11 days in November. In fact, it’s called “The Best 11 Days on the Gulf Coast,” and the countdown is on!

This year, the festival is on schedule for Nov. 4-14, 2021, with venues all along the Alabama and Florida Gulf Coast.

An opportunity for seasoned and aspiring songwriters and musicians from all over the world to have their songs heard, and for the public to learn the stories behind the lyrics that only the song’s author can express, this festival will be hosted in more than two dozen venues along the coast.

The mission of the Frank Brown International Foundation for Music, a 501c3 organization, is to bring the authors of original music out of the shadows and into the spotlight, reach into schools to enrich lives and encourage creativity through music, and support businesses by increasing tourism in the Gulf Coast region.

Venues include the Coastal Arts Center of Orange Beach, Flora-Bama, Lucy Buffett’s LuLu’s restaurant, Sunset Cork Room, Tacky Jacks, The Woodside Restaurant at Gulf State Park. Sandshaker at The Wharf and more.

Book your beach house or condo for this festival now. A two-bedroom condo is ideal for a small group of up to six or eight, but if your crew needs a lot more space, consider a 5+ bedroom beach house.
