Lullaby of the Rivers Festival

Just west of A1A

St. Augustine, FL 32084

Lullaby of the Rivers celebrates Earth Day with a festival on Saturday and Sunday, April 20 - 21, 2024, at the North Shores Community Park in Vilano Beach.

Local singer/songwriter Bob Patterson, and organizer/activist Carol Kramer, have used Bob's award-winning song "Lullaby of the Rivers" to create an Earth Day festival featuring regional musicians, storytellers, and environmental organizations.

"Lullaby of the Rivers" is a tribute to Florida's rivers and their heritage. In his folksy storytelling style, Patterson invites listeners to embrace the Native American tradition of environmental responsibility by remembering that Florida's great rivers — including the Apalachicola, Ichetucknee, Ocklawaha, and Kissimmee — carry the names they were given by the native people.

In addition to two days of musical entertainment, the event will include an Earth Day Resource Fair with activities for kids, sustainable food tastings, and environmental organization presentations. The mission of the Lullaby of the Rivers Festival is to "awaken and nurture connections to nature in gatherings of all ages by using music and stories that inspire environmental awareness and consciousness."
