The nine-day celebration of art, literature, film and music features performances by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly on January 31 and Najee on February 1

Festival patrons will enjoy the diverse mix of music, including gospel, Caribbean music and Latin American rhythms throughout the entire Festival. Aficionados of straight-ahead jazz will relish the tribute to Eatonville's jazz legend Bernie Lee on January 26. The spotlight will be on Memphis soul during the video presentation of the 1972 Wattstax Music Festival at the Enzian Theater on January 27 and the Mississippi Delta Blues will hold the stage at The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando on January 29. Patrons can travel back in time to dance to swing jazz and bebop at Club ZORA! on January 30, the Festival's costumed event set in a nightclub during the World War II era.

Hip-hop will be recognized during "Roots to Rap: A Musical Revue" on January 30. The legendary Maze featuring Frankie Beverly will return to Eatonville to perform their style of R&B, soul and funk on January 31 in the final weekend of the Festival. And smooth jazz fans will not want to miss the Festival's closing live performance by international saxophonist and flautist, Najee along with his sensational band on February 1.

ZORA! Festival is presented annually by The Association to Preserve the Eatonville Community, Inc. (P.E.C.), a 501(c)3, historic preservation and cultural arts organization, first organized in 1987. The Festival celebrates the life and work of 20th century writer, folklorist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston; her hometown, Eatonville, the nation's oldest incorporated African American municipality; and the cultural contributions people of African ancestry have made to the United States and the world. The mission of the Association to Preserve Eatonville Community (P.E.C.) is to enhance the resources of Eatonville, to educate the public about the town's historic and cultural significance, and to use the community's heritage and cultural vibrancy for its economic development.
