About the Lincolnville Heritage Festival
Celebrating our 30th year anniversary!
This year’s Lincolnville Heritage Festival marks its 30th year anniversary! The Lincolnville Heritage Festival originally started in 1979 by Jazz musician Doug Carn and businessman Christopher Lightburn to help fund the Lincolnville Restoration Development Inc, with the aim of preserving and restoring the area of Lincolnville which is rich and heritage and history. Doug Carn went on to pursue his musical career and the festival’s reigns were taken up by local musician and businessman, Lorenzo Laws. The festival continued and eventually in 1988, Laws chartered the Lincolnville Festival Committee, Inc., which continues to run the festival to this day.
The festival has been moved through several locations throughout the years and returns this year to The Francis Field right downtown in the Historic St. Augustine district and will continue to support the rich history of Lincolnville and Fort Mose. We look forward to a great weekend of large national musical acts, gospel choirs, soul food, bbq, vendors, games, hot air balloon rides and so much more. This is certain to be an amazing weekend for the whole family and all to support the rich history and heritage of Lincolnville.
