Kick back and relax with the 2nd Annual Opelika Songwriters Festival. Enjoy live musical performances by local, regional, and national songwriters in historic downtown Opelika on Sept. 18-20, 2020. 

The Opelika Songwriters Festival will entertain music fans at its 2nd annual celebration over Memorial Day Weekend at multiple venues in the town’s historic downtown. Rob and Jen Slocumb, a.k.a. Martha’s Trouble (a husband-and-wife folk/rock duo and owners of Opelika recording studio/event center The Sound Wall) are bringing the new festival to life. The Opelika Songwriters Festival is a co-production of The Sound Wall and The Arts Association of East Alabama.

More than 30 singer-songwriters attended last year’s inaugural event, from local acts to international touring artists, including Grammy Award-winner Dan Navarro, Kate Campbell, Harpeth Rising, and many more.

The festival will take place in Downtown Opelika at more than nine venues, including John Emerald Distillery, Sneak & Dawdle, Irish Bred Pub, Eighth & Rail, Ma Fia’s Outdoor Patio, The Depot Outdoor Stage, Zazu Gastro Pub, and Studio 319.

This event is sponsored by The Sound Wall. (Rescheduled from late March)
