Pinellas Festival of Community Bands

We're thrilled to announce the fifth annual Pinellas Festival of Community Bands. A musical feast for the ears this year featuring seven Florida Community bands.

Seven Bands From Throughout Florida Join Together for the 5th Annual Pinellas Festival of Community Bands in Dunedin.

Dunedin, Florida, – Seven Florida Community Bands, over 700 performers, join together to celebrate Live Music in the park on the stage at England Brothers Park in Pinellas Park, Florida. This Live Music event is sponsored by the Dunedin Music Society

Continuous Live Band Music from jazz to classical, contemporary to traditional, will be performed from 1:00PM-5:00PM by the 80-piece St. Petersburg Community Band, the 65-Piece Dunedin Concert Band, The Florida Brass Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps, The Gulfport Gecko Amalgamated Marching Band, The New Horizons Band of Gulfport, The Anclote Symphonic Winds, and the 450-piece Greater St. Petersburg Area Awesome Original Second Time Arounders Marching Band complete with majorettes, dancers, rifles, and flag teams. Most from the seven bands will join together for a 700+ piece finale at the end of the show.

Bring a lawn chair, blanket, and umbrella for park seating. Your own food welcome as well as refreshments from three food trucks onsite. A family and dog friendly event!

“It’s a showcase of entertainment provided by participants enjoying a lifetime of music making,” says Second Time Arounders founder & director Bill Findeison, who’s adult marching band, the Second Time Arounders, marched in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade last year.

“These are a fine mix of amateur and professional musicians in seven bands who enjoy the activity enough to continue playing long after the notes of their high school, college, or military bands have expired.” “It’s about performing lively music for the crowds as well as for each other” Bill adds.

“The quality of musicianship is an experience to hear…live” adds Stephen P. Brown who directs the Dunedin Concert Band and is the General Director of the Dunedin Music Society, sponsor of this event. “The Festival has grown from 3 bands to 7 creating a lot of interest each year.” “We’re exited to continue to move the event around Pinellas County this time to Pinellas Park” he adds.

The music begins at 1pm but picnics on the lawn can begin sooner. Bring a blanket and/or lawn chairs, fill yourself from the three food trucks on site, and be sure to make a donation to help the band programs sponsor the hundreds of volunteer performers on stage. The festival is children and dog friendly!
