Following a successful summer season of events, the Greater New Smyrna Beach Area is excited to announce a Fall “Beach Weeks” Campaign, again taking place in Southeast Volusia County. The 10 week event festival will run from September 27th, 2013 through November 30th, 2013.  The kick-off event for fall is the 13th Annual New Smyrna Beach Jazz Festival, featuring a variety of Jazz Musicians performing throughout New Smyrna Beach.

Volusia County is already a global tourism hotspot that draws thousands to events like Speed Weeks and Bike Weeks in Daytona. “Beach Weeks” is designed to utilize a similar events-driven approach to further raise the profile of the pristine beaches, active outdoor lifestyle and family-friendly character of New Smyrna Beach and Southeast Volusia County, which also includes the areas of Port Orange, Edgewater, Oak Hill and Osteen.
