This is a great festival that I have attended at least 8 times over the last 10 years. It taks place usually in late March at the Spirit of the Suwannee music park and campground. The Springfest always has a great mix of Americana, Folk, Newgrass, and Bluegrass and sometimes some Rock/Jambands. The festival is the "acoustic" sister festival to the Magnolia Festival that usually takes place in late October. There is a lot do other than music as well... You can canoe the Suwannee River (lots of fun), find a rope swing, jump in the always cold and refreshing sulfer spring waters near by, or just have a relaxing camping trip jamming with your friends. Security at these festivals has gotten a little tighter over the years, and they have ruined the fun for some, but overall it is a great time and I highly recommend it. You should check out the park even if it isn't a festival weekend, as there is always someone hanging around playing some old-time gospel.
