Uncle Bardie’s Spotlight Creator: The Florida Folk Festival

Once a week on Friday, Uncle Bardie celebrates the creativity in others by shining a Spotlight on a movie, a song or a creator. This week’s Spotlight Creator is the art and artists of the Florida Folk Festival:

Once a year on Memorial Day Weekend, many Floridans bring their families to the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park for the Florida Folk Festival. This family affair is a heck of a get together on the banks of the Suwannee. Not only does it feature some great music and musicians. It also features much of the food and culture of the Sunshine State. Everything from folk dancing to circus culture to medicine shows to puppetry can be seen at the Festival. Every year is a different experience.
