PRESERVING THE PAST TO HELP BUILD THE FUTURE
Welcome to the 2016 South Florida Folk Festival. The South Florida Folk Festival is presented by the Broward Folk Club. Since its inception in 1992, the Festival has been a combination of a music fest, family reunion, community gathering, and weekend musical retreat. This year marks the 21st anniversary, and we are thrilled to be able to bring the South Florida Folk Festival back as a two-day event in a park setting.
THIS YEAR’S FESTIVAL
We welcome music loving fans to experience and enjoy great acoustic music performed by exceptional Florida-based and national musicians. The Festival is a celebration of many unique folk traditions. The Festival will feature:
• Over 40 musicians performing on two stages • Songwriting Competition • Workshops led by performers • Jam area for those who enjoy playing • Food and Crafts Vendors • CD Sales • Raffles
OUR THEME IS PRESERVATION
• Enjoy the lovely pristine setting of Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, an ecologically/environmentally friendly nature center dedicated to preserving the subtropical coastal habitat that once covered southeast Florida. • We are assisted this year by our co-sponsor, STOP (Sea Turtle Oversight Protection), a wildlife organization dedicated to protecting the natural habitat of sea turtles and thus ensuring the ongoing preservation of this endangered species. • The Broward Folk Club’s ongoing goal is to preserve our rich American heritage/ tradition of song and story into the next century.
Working together, we can ensure that Florida’s many riches… both cultural and environmental… will continue for the enjoyment of future generations.
