This year, our theme of family is realized because most of our acts are related either by birth, marriage, or mentorship,” said Todd Ramquist, festival organizer and founder. “We hope the audience will feel like they are part of our family too,” explained Kiaralinda, festival organizer and founder. Performances will be enjoyed at two stage areas on both days, from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm on Saturday and 11:00am to 7:00pm on Sunday. Musicians will also perform at local venues in downtown Safety Harbor throughout the weekend.
