Rural Folklife Days celebrates the region's rural past with demonstrations and hands-on learning activities. Visitors can taste jellies, play traditional games, churn butter, sing songs, square dancing, quilt on a frame, taste sugar cane, assist a blacksmith, learn about lye soap, watch demonstrations of old-fashioned cane grinding and learn to fish!
This event is a long-standing tradition at the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park - for decades students have enjoyed field trips to the park to experience this event. Schools are encouraged to attend this event and preregister. For more information, please call (386) 397-7005. Schools that do preregister get into the Florida Folk Festival Education Day in May for free!
Everyone is welcome.
