The Broward Folk Club is pleased to bring the South Florida Folk Festival back to the Bergeron Rodeo Grounds in Davie, FL for a much anticipated live event expanded to two days this year.   The weekend-long event takes place Saturday and Sunday February 4-5, 2023 and features two stages of non-stop entertainment including folk, bluegrass, jazz, world music and Americana.

Local and national talent include American Idol Crystal Bowersox, guitar virtuoso Brian Smalley, local bluegrass group Matthew Sabatello and the Rambling String Band, and folk legends The Kennedys to name just a few. Local musicians are invited to bring their own instruments and jam with one another, participate in workshops to learn new musical skills, including a kids ukulele workshop on Saturday.
