Fill your ears with bluegrass, gospel, folk, and Celtic music on both days. Tap your toes to clogging, Morris, Rapper Sword, and Garland dance performances throughout the weekend.

Hungry festival goers can satisfy their appetites with a tasty lunch, dessert, or snack. Vendors’ concession proceeds benefit several non-profit and community organizations.
The Folk School’s renowned Craft Shop, containing fine crafts from over 600 juried regional artists, will draw visitors throughout the weekend and be offering a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to the Craft Shop.
No pets allowed.
While many vendors accept credit cards, attendees are encouraged to bring cash to pay for tickets and food.
The Pressley Girls will perform on the Festival Barn Stage at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday Oct 7. If you make it to our performance PLEASE come up and say hello!
