More than 60 acts totaling more than 150 musicians will answer the musical question, “What is folk?” during the 20th annual Lake County Folk Festival. The event is scheduled for Oct. 14-15 at nine venues in and around Ferran Park on Lake Eustis in downtown Eustis. Hours are 10am-9pm Saturday, and 11am-5pm Sunday.
Featured performers are Passerine, Larry Mangum, Rachel Grubb, 2PM, and Remedy Tree. The entertainment lineup will include folk, Americana, blues, Celtic, country, gospel, and oldies music, a sunset concert, and open jams, so bring your instruments or write a song for the Funniest Folk Song Contest.
Food will be available at local restaurants and food trucks, and shoppers can peruse a large arts and crafts area.
This family-oriented event is billed as the longest-running free folk festival in Florida, according to lakecountyfolkfest.org.
