The very best aspects of the annual Orlando Folk Festival come together for the debut Indie-Folkfest 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, Jessie. 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. 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.

Create custom Valentine’s Day cards and Cupid’s arrows at the make-and-take art station.

Bring a picnic basket or indulge in our special picnic-box cuisine developed by local establishments, which will be available for sale, along with extraordinary craft cocktails.
