The Florida Folk Festival is a three-day celebration of the music, dance, stories, crafts and food that make Florida unique. Every Memorial Day weekend you can find more than 300 performances giving voice and meaning to Florida's heritage at the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in White Springs. From Irish fiddle tunes, techno contradancing and kumquat pie, to the wide varieties of music brought by immigrants, the state's cultural heritage reflects the lives of generations of Florida families and communities.
Every year the Florida Department of State's Florida Folklife Program researches a region of Florida and special topics on Florida's traditional heritage. 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.
Tickets are always available at the festival gate and can be purchased in advance at the Festival's website.
