Welcome to New Bedford Folk Festival!
While the full music festival is a ticketed event, several areas are free for the public to enjoy. Join us for lunch or dinner, listen to the sounds of the Southcoast Stage, or peruse the extensive artisanal marketplace.

Sarah Donner / Putnam Murdock / Richard D. Lewis / Molly O’Leary / Marybeth Soares & Dave Pereira / Matt Borrello / Grace Morrison / Joanne Doherty / Golden Lane / Fourteen Strings / Dori Rubbicco / Chuck Williams / Charlie Cover / Barbara Phaneuf / Back Porch
