The 122nd Annual Georgefest in the City of Eustis will feature outstanding performers throughout the week-long celebration, February 17-24, 2024. Georgefest is the oldest, continuous celebration of President George Washington in the country.

Bryce Mauldin, a 22-year old native of Central Florida who fell in love with music in his teens, will headline the opening night of Georgefest on Saturday, February 17 at 7 p.m. Originally from Webster, Mauldin’s life hasn’t been the same since he began posting his songs on social media, garnering 9.1 million views performing a cover of “I Can Love You Like That,” in 2017. Now living in Nashville, Tenn., Mauldin is continuing to write songs and perform as he makes his name on the music scene.

On Thursday, February 22 at 7 p.m., Thunderstorm Artis will take the stage in Eustis. The soulful singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist’s appearance on Season 18 of “The Voice” brought him to national attention and earned the unique performer a place in the finals. Originally from Hawaii, Artis blends his own, original compositions, such as “Sedona,” with interpretations of songs by The Beatles and Louis Armstrong.

Bringing his famous “Watermelon Crawl” to Eustis, award-winning country music star Tracy Byrd performs on Friday, February 23 at 8 p.m. The Texas native began his career with major Nashville record labels in the 1990s, and he has continued to wow audiences ever since with his music, including toe-tapping hits like “I’m From the Country” and the soulful ballad, “The Keeper of the Stars.” Byrd is also known for his philanthropic efforts on behalf of the Special Olympics and other charities.

Highlighting the final night of Georgefest, country music star Drake White will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 24. White received the Grammy’s Artist of Tomorrow award and the British CMA Awards’ International Song of the Year for “Makin’ Me Look Good Again.” A native of Alabama, White has four Top 40 hits and has shared the bill with numerous superstars, from Luke Bryan to the Zac Brown Band.

Throughout the week, numerous other events, including a parade and a carnival, are all planned, so visit Georgefest for more information.
