This series consists of printed programs from each annual Florida Folk Festival from the first in 1953 to recent years. The programs provide a schedule and listings of performances, food vendors, crafters, and other festival events. More recent programs also provide background information about each year's "folklife area" focussing on particular ethnic groups or folk traditions as well as information about Folk Heritage Award winners and Folk Arts Apprenticeships. All but the earliest programs also include photographs of previous festival events and key people in the planning and coordination of the festival.
