Pepsi’s Funk Fest makes its way to the Central Florida Fairgrounds this weekend, bringing a full evening of food, funk and fun. This year’s lineup includes popular ’80s and ’90s R&B favorites such as Mint Condition, Silk, SWV and Whodini, followed by a headlining performance by none other than the R&B don dada himself, R. Kelly. With a variety of VIP seating packages available and with all of that groove (or should we say funk?) going around, we doubt you’ll spend much time planted in your seat.

With R. Kelly, Mint Condition, Silk, SWV and Whodini | 3 p.m. Saturday, April 18 | Central Florida Fairgrounds, 4603 W. Colonial Drive | 407-295-3247 | funkfesttour.com | $40-$2,500
