Suwannee SpringFest has become one of the most popular American/bluegrass festivals in the US over its long history of providing some of the best known artists in America and introduction of new artists. It’s a laid back family festival with three outside stages and one inside the Music Hall from Thursday through Sunday. It’s a time to slow down and enjoy America’s music, sit in on jam sessions with many of the artists, have some great food, rent a golf cart and tour the 800-acre park filled with birds of all kinds and beautiful trees, see the new treehouse going up, visit with friends, take a bike ride, canoe on the Suwannee River and much, much more while you visit the internationally known SOSMPC.
