Our Natural North Florida region is well known for some great music festivals and events. After all, Gainesville “raised” Stephen Stills, Tom Petty, Bo Diddley and others. But at the northern end of the region, at one of the largest venues, some great “American music” can be heard at several events held at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, just north of Live Oak, in Suwannee County.
On of the most popular and largest festivals is Suwannee Spring Reunion, held in 2019 from March 21 to 24. Expect to hear great performers like Verlon Thompson, Donna The Buffalo, Jim Lauderdale, and the Steep Canyon Rangers. There will be several stages, indoors and out, giving attendees a chance to view acts and performers throughout the day (and night!). One advantage to campers attending the event is that all acts take place in walking distance from the various campgrounds on the property. Also, impromptu jam sessions are a popular way to play music with friends and family.
In addition to the professional performers, there will be activities for the kids, workshops, food and craft vendors and even YOGA! You can even hike along the banks of the famous Suwannee River or rent a kayak or canoe, on site.
Advance tickets for the 2019 Suwannee Spring Reunion are available online at SuwanneeSpringReuinion.com or by phone at (386) 364-1683
