Will McLean always said after his performances he "could feel the love poured out."

There was love poured out at the last Will McLean Music Festival .

-- love of Florida, love of music and love of one another.

Folks come from near and far to enjoy their favorite music, to learn more about music in the workshops, and to sing and play music in the campfire circles. You can check out a viewFest Slideshowof the past festival here at our web site.

Volunteersfor the festival and for Sertoma are the oil that keeps the engine of the festival running.

We look forward to gathering once again for our celebration of Florida at the Will McLean Festival.  We will be moving back to the beautiful Sertoma Ranch where we spent so many happy years.
See you there!
