Welcome to Daytona Beach, where you can see fireworks on the ocean!
This scenic amphitheater is located in Oceanfront Park on the north end of the Boardwalk amusement area and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean at Daytona Beach in Florida. It hosts regular free concerts for the residents of Daytona Beach and its visitors. Built of coquina in 1937, the Band shell can host 5,000 people for concerts, outdoor weddings, receptions, events or group activities.
Parking is available at the Ocean Center garage and surface lots. You can enter the Band shell through the Ocean Walk Village from A1A or the overpass from the parking garage.
Daytona Beach Oceanfront Band shell is free and seasonal – May through September. Each Saturday beginning at 7:15 the concerts are held at the ocean front, historic coquina band shell and feature musical styles such as swing, country, jazz, rock and big band. Be sure to stick around for the free fireworks show at 9:45 p.m.
All summer nights are special at Daytona Beach but the most special one of all is the Fourth of July. The first aerial bomb detonates well before dark, hammering against the sky with a flat bang and then echoing and re-echoing across the dark water. Rockets follow, springing up at intervals from half a dozen locations, etching gold patterns across the night sky. Red and green running lights of a long line of idling boats add a festive touch and between the explosions voices and music drift across the ocean.
It’s a good place to be and a good time to be there!
