Year round Daytona Beach residents and visitors are fortunate to have an entertainment crown jewel – Peabody Auditorium – to enjoy. About 100,000 residents and visitors attend events annually at the Peabody. Thanks to funding by the City of Daytona Beach, the Peabody Auditorium Foundation, the Daytona Beach Symphony Society and community partners, and grants from the Daytona Beach Racing and Recreational Facilities and Volusia ECHO, the Peabody has a new piano, stage floor and renovated kitchen. There also is a new sound system in the process of being installed.
Since November 2018, there have been eight sold-out performances including Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, Travis Tritt, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias and Jackson Browne. According to Peabody officials, some of the biggest artists on tour who are performing at theaters the size of Peabody, are now making stops in Daytona Beach and selling out or reaching near capacity of the venue and generating record-breaking concession sales.
