Word of South 2021

Donate to our festival today and you can become a WOS Sustaining Member*!

Please join us in becoming a Sustaining Member of the unique cultural experience that is Word of South. This event takes place annually in the heart of beautiful Tallahassee, Cascades Park, and showcases local and national authors and musicians. A majority of the events are free to the public, and with your support, we can keep it that way!

Thank you to our 2020 sustaining members. We've carried your contribution for 2020 over to 2021 and you'll be receiving your sustaining member packets prior to the festival. If you'd like to make an additional contribution for 2021 you can do so using the form below. Thank you for your support! Additionally, our 2021 festival will have limited attendance and require a free ticket to enter the park. With your Sustaining Membership, you will receive a ticket for entry to the 2021 festival. If your circumstances dictate donating an amount smaller than $100, we’d love a check! Please send to Word of South Festival, PO Box 861, Tallahassee, FL 32302
