The Festival's Folklife Area will features performances and demonstrations celebrating the diverse living traditions of an area of Florida. Be sure to visit the Folklife Area to experience the compelling traditions and savor the flavors, sights and sounds of some of Florida's oldest and newest cultural communities.
Florida Folk Festival
At the Florida Folk Festival you can sit with the masters who keep cultural traditions alive. In jam sessions, demonstrations and workshops, try your own hand at playing mandolin, telling stories, or making a pine needle basket. Learn how to collect your family's history, call a square dance, or the importance of native plant and animal species.
As the sun sets, settle in for concerts by moonlight or dance the night away at the Heritage Stage. At the end of the day you'll have discovered new corners of the state from the people who call Florida home.
Join us next year along the Suwannee River at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park for the 70th annual Florida Folk Festival on May 27 through 29, 2022.
