Folk & Smoke Festival

White Oak Savanna Events Farm & Sanctuary is proud to announce our first ever “White Oak Savanna Folk & Smoke Festival!” Bring your instruments and your voices because “Folk” is live music, group jams and workshops. Bring your appetite because “Smoke” is mouth-watering locally sourced bbq, food and libations. It’s a “Sanctuary” because there will be nature, camping, camaraderie and community.

Located in Southern Wisconsin’s picturesque Driftless Region, White Oak Savanna is a one-of-a-kind events venue featuring the beautifully restored 1920s barn built by Frank Lloyd Wright’s cousin, Charles Lloyd Jones. Overlooking 88 acres of farmland and organically restored oak savanna prairie with the meticulously restored Lloyd Jones Barn Pavilion (the main stage) you will simply be blown away. We are family friendly and all ADA accessible!

The festival will be taking place August 16 & 17 and will feature Dom Flemons (of the Carolina Chocolate Drops), Roe Family Singers, Mark Dvorak, Jonas Friddle with Anna Jacobson & Andrew Wilkins, Point Five & String Strang!
