Enjoy an Unforgettable Day of Music and Fun at the Florida Harmonica Championships

Come enjoy an unforgettable day of music and fun at the largest harmonica festival and competition in the Southeast US! This event features competitors from all over the state of Florida, including special guest stars and international recording artists, and a pre-show at The Hub on Canal. All genres and styles will be represented with plaques for the winners and a Grand Prize trophy.

The Florida Harmonica Championships began as part of the show for the Florida band the Coyotes and Towndogs. Players who were in the audience were invited to compete with Farley Palmer, the bands harmonica player. After a couple years, Adam Floyd, the bandleader of the Dogs suggested we create a separate event to showcase the instrument. The response to the stage challenges has been great and Adam and Farley have become more aware that almost everyone had some connection to the harmonica.

Since the first year, the Florida Harmonica Championships has become the biggest harmonica festival in the southeast US with 1,000 attendees in 2017, 25 harmonica players, prizes and giveaways, food and merchandise vendors and incredible international guest stars.
