Central Florida Folk hosts folk music concerts on the last Sunday of the month, in the Orlando area, except for the month of May.   The Florida Folk Festival is always held on the last weekend in May.  Concerts in November and December are either not held, or, held on a date that does not conflict with Thanksgiving or Christmas.  Concerts begin at 2:30 PM.

Hello, Everyone.  We are grateful to Roy and Connie Brand for hosting our End of Month Concerts for the last five years.  We are searching for new venues for which our concerts may be appropriate, i.e. comfortable, accessible, and friends of folk and acoustic music.  The next few months will see us at several different places, all of which seem comfortable, accessible, and friendly to our music and you, our audience and patrons
.  We hope you will continue to join us through this period of finding a new home, and that our music will be as well-received as it has been for over fifteen years. We are working hard to ensure that the quality of music and sound will be at the same standard of excellence you have come to expect.
