Along the banks of the historic Suwannee River in White Springs, Florida folk artists have gathered since 1953 for Florida's most prestigious cultural event. The 61st Annual Florida Folk Festival at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park is one of the oldest and most revered state folk festivals in America.
You've seen the products of extremely skilled artisans, but you may not know how they get from raw material to finished goods. Here in the Craft Square Area, you'll get a close-up look at the processes. The Stephen Foster Craft Square is located a short walk from the Carillon Tower. Located in the Craft Square are 5 cabins that serve as demonstration areas for Florida artists as well as visiting artists from all over the country. Over the weekend Florida artists will be working throughout the Craft Square demonstrating various Traditional & Contemporary arts. Pottery, Woodworking, Stained Glass, Fiber Arts, and Blacksmithing are just a few of the arts that can be seen. All of these artists welcome visitor interaction and most sell their finished items.
