The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County is seeking individuals/private homeowners who would like to be a part of the 30A Songwriters Festival Artist Host Program.  

Please complete one application in its entirety per property, and we will be in contact to let you know if your property has been approved.

Artist hosts will be acknowledged in the Festival's printed program and will receive 2022 30A Songwriters Festival weekend passes in exchange for the donation of housing. The number of tickets received by host is directly related to the size of the donated property.

This program is for homes, apartments, condos, or carriage houses owned by individuals only. Interested businesses or rental agencies may contact Kaela Hargis at

The Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County produces the Valentine Tour of Homes each year as a fundraising effort for its Art for All funding program. The 2022 event is scheduled for Saturday, February 12, 10am-4pm and Sunday, February 13, 12pm-4pm. 

The Tour usually includes 5-7 properties that represent diverse architectural styles, beautiful interior design, historic significance, and fine art collections. This year we have decided to prominently feature outdoor living spaces to include gardens, pools and outdoor recreation spaces and gorgeous landscaping.  

Private homeowners may submit their property for consideration via the form below with no participation fee. Properties that are on the market and submitted by a real estate company will be asked to make a $500 donation to participate and be listed as a sponsor.
