Community Unity Festival - Saturday, August 18

Daytona Beach’s 6th Annual Community Unity Festival featuring Summer Splash will be Saturday, August 18 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. This FREE event, which will include activities for all ages, will be held at Daisy Stocking Park, 555 Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Blvd. in Daytona Beach. 

Hosted by the City of Daytona Beach, the Community Unity Festival is designed to give residents a family-friendly venue and age-appropriate activities to celebrate summer’s end in the heart of Daytona Beach. And, this year’s Community Unity Festival features Summer Splash, including a crazy fun splash play area for kids and adults alike.

In addition, there will be community program booths, local food and beverage vendors, community mascots, a dance party and live performances by local and national artists. 

“This event helps to build bridges between communities and brings people together through their passion for art and a desire to make positive changes in their schools and communities,” said Cultural & Leisure Services Director, Helen Riger.

Kicking off the Community Unity Festival at 10 a.m. is 300lbs of Guwop. Daytona Beach natives Dk Guwop and 300Rez are the hip-hop duo reminiscent of young Deep South Outkast. 300lbs of Guwop is known for their single “Teefus” which is so hot that it’s getting national radio play and gaining popularity. Fans love the song so much that it got its own #TeefusChallenge on 300lbs of Guwop plans on continuing to make authentic hip-hop slaps all while inspiring the youth. Their long-term goal is to be the first act from Daytona Beach to receive a Grammy. They want to put Central Florida on the map and they mean what they say.

The Community Unity Festival is sponsored by the City of Daytona Beach, Southern Stone Event Groups, HOT 94.1 Radio, the VIBE 103.3 Radio and Image Today.
