The Sarasota Folk Festival - March 21 & 22, 2015 


The Sarasota Folk Festival is held at the Oscar Scherer State Park in Osprey. We run three stages of music all day from 10am to 10pm (Sat) and 10am to 5pm (Sun), with a jam tent for aspiring musicians and a workshop tent for those seeking up-close and personal tips and instructions from their favorite artists. Saturday evening we set the stage for our headliner artists to showcase in the large tent for our evening concert 6pm - 10pm. The gate opens at 9:30AM both days!!
We have a children's area with workshops and fun events, right next to the park's excellent playground and our Family Stage. We have folklife exhibits and quality vendors selling crafts and art as well as plenty of food vendors. Come enjoy this two day community folk event at the best park in the State of Florida!
