A folk festival celebration 25 years in the making deserves the best circumstance! Because we want you to be safe and feel secure about attending, we have decided to postpone the festival until the summer of 2021.

Local talent performing at the Food and Beer Garden outside of The Zeiterion Performing Arts Center. This stage does not require a wristband.
Workshops are gatherings of musicians who seldom, if ever, share the same stage. They combine genres, so the music made inspires and excites both the audience and musicians in ways not experienced at other music events.
Most Folk Festival performers appear in at least one of the two dozen workshops held during the festival. They collaborate on a common theme, like “The Maid on the Shore: Songs of the Battle of the Sexes.” Sometimes the theme is as simple as “Red Hot Music!” As a result, each workshop is a show that you’ve never seen before and will never see again, remembered long after the festival is over.
