Event Summary
The 14th Annual Flagler County Creekside Festival is a Florida Heritage Festival that has become one of the most popular festivals in Northeast/Central Florida, attracting more than 10,000 visitors each year. The draw? Family friendly activities like top-notch live bluegrass music on the main stage, Gamble Rogers Music and local musicians on a second stage, arts & craft vendors, a new juried art show, blacksmith demonstrations, food trucks, a beer garden, a free kid’s zone and much more in a picturesque natural setting.
