On the heels of having to cancel and postpone all of their programming through at least April, the Timucua Arts Foundation has created a virtual market hub to help local musicians.

The ongoing Digital Music Flea Market event on Facebook  continuing through the end of March  will, ideally, serve as a gathering point for local musicians to drop links to their music online.

Visit the burgeoning Digital Flea Market on Facebook, click "Going" and indulge in a wealth of local sounds. Local musicians and bands are encouraged to post their links.

Also of note: Timucua is also doing daily live "Timucua Live in Your Living Room" broadcasts of previous shows held there on Facebook, Vimeo, the Timucua website and YouTube at 7:30 p.m. each evening. There are plans now to add new performances in the near future

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, all bars and nightclubs in Florida were closed on March 17 for 30 days. As of March 18, Central Florida restaurants are still open for takeout and delivery, and grocery stores are open during limited hours. Follow CDC guidelines and Orange County advisories on staying safe.
