Description

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park is proud to present Rural Folklife Day. Demonstrators will be on hand displaying Florida traditions of yesterday and today during this event. Rural Folklife Day 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 pre-register!

Contact the park for more information. Schools that pre-register get into the Florida Folk Festival Education Day in May for free!
