Along the banks of the historic Suwannee River in White Springs,Florida, folk artists have gathered to celebrate Florida’s land, people and diverse cultural heritage. Since its humble beginning in 1953, the Florida Folk Festival has not only grown to become Florida’s most prestigious cultural event, but also named “Florida’s Best Cultural Event.” In 2011, the festival was recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society with the honor of being a “Top 20 Event” in the southeastern United States.
