Emphasizing the traditions, stories and practices that come from the South is more than nostalgia for the Festival. It’s really about preserving these rituals for our future. Over the years, parents have brought their children to be entertained by the puppet shows, dancers, movers and musicians that are a part of our two-day festival. Now, they’ve grown up and are reliving those experiences by bringing their own children.
In this way we continue to preserve, defend and protect the music, culture, arts & rhythms of the South for generations to come.
