Carl Sandburg Music Festival

May 30 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

This music festival celebrates American music as Carl Sandburg recorded it in his book, “The American Songbag.” Compiling and publishing the American Songbag was one of the most difficult projects Sandburg took on during his life. It is a collection of 280 songs, songs of the country, the prairie, war, jail, cities, love, death, and a little nonsense. Today, the Carl Sandburg Music Festival celebrates his work and the work of modern singers and songwriters to share diverse and original American music.

This event is free and open to the public. Snacks will be available for sale in the bookstore and tours of the Sandburg home will be available throughout the day for a small fee.

Parking – A courtesy shuttle will run from satellite parking lots at the Flat Rock Playhouse (located across the street) and from the Flat Rock Village Offices (110 Village Center Drive) to the park entrance, throughout the day.  It is a short walk from the park entrance to the amphitheater.  There will be also be a shuttle operating inside the park to take visitors from the entrance to the amphitheater, Sandburg Home and barn area.

Bench seating is available and visitors are also welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets as seating is expected to fill quickly. Come prepared for warm weather, with sun protection, water and snacks. Dogs are not permitted in the seating areas for the festival.
