The Mennello Museum of American Art updates the traditional Orlando Folk Festival with a new Valentine’s Day family affair, with music, special picnic uisine, craft cocktails, music and art.
Join us for the debut Orlando Indie Folk Fest at the Mennello Museum, a free sweetheart of an afternoon and evening, from 2 p.m.-7 p.m. Saturday, February 14th in the Sculpture Gardens, overlooking the lake.
The very best aspects of the annual Orlando Folk Festival come together for the Orlando Indie Folk Fest at the Mennello Museum – and it will all be squeezed into one special afternoon and evening on Valentine’s Day 2015.
Mark your calendar for this free affair that’s a gift from the museum’s City of Orlando Board of Trustees. The festival is produced by Genevieve Bernard, also producer of the Kids Fringe Festival that arrives in May to the same grounds of the Mennello Museum.
Holding down the music stage is the irrepressible Joseph Martens and his sweetheart of a wife, Jessy. The couple will play emcees to the string of local musicians, as well as perform as their duo project, JUNOSmile.
Also confirmed to play is Eugene Snowden of The Legendary JCs, JUNOSmile and PALEFACE. And there will be a special Twilight Concert to finish off the evening!
The artist marketplace will take on a sweeping Valentine theme, with art and crafts for sale by longtime festival favorites, as well as newcomers.
There's free family fun including fence painting and making Valentines.
Bring a picnic basket or indulge in special picnic cuisine by East End Market vendors, which will be available for sale, along with craft cocktails by local establishments including Hanson's Shoe Repair, NV Art Bar, Lil' Indies, The Milk Bar and RusTeak Restaurant and Wine..
