14th Annual Creekside Music & Arts Festival Strums in October 6 & 7
Palm Coast, FL – Imagine the twang of a banjo and a blissful three-part harmony, accompanied by a lively fiddle, acoustic guitar and stand-up string bass wafting throughout a pristine natural preserve with a backdrop of water and centuries old live oaks. This is the experience that brings thousands of guests, music and arts lovers, as well as families to Princess Place Preserve each fall for the annual Creekside Music & Arts Festival. Now in its 14th year, the Creekside Music & Arts Festival will strum into Flagler County on Saturday, October 6th and Sunday, October 7th as a favorite community tradition brought to you by the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce.
For just $10 per vehicle per day, there is something for everyone to experience including great live music on two stages. The main stage will feature bluegrass and folk music from The Florida State Bluegrass Band, Aslyn and the Naysayers, Passerine, Remedy Tree, Sam Pacetti, Seminole Ridge and Headed South.
The all NEW second stage located with Pellicer Creek in the backdrop and closer the kids zone will feature talented singer/songwriter musicians to play on Saturday from the Gamble Rogers Music Festival including Skye Blumenfeld, Madeline Grace, Jorden Foley, Davis and the Loose Cannons and Brittani Mueller all playing a mix of pop folk, Honky Tonk country and folk Americana. The Sunday stage line-up will feature local musicians Aaron Esposito, Category 5, Rob Ellis Peck and Pilotwave playing classic rock, “bluesy” rock, “folked up 80s” and Indie Americana.
