The 77th annual National Folk Festival returns to Greensboro this September. A large-scale, three-day outdoor event presented FREE to the public, the National Folk Festival celebrates the roots, richness, and variety of American culture. It features more 300 of the nation’s finest traditional musicians (including the Treme Brass Band, pictured), dancers, and craftspeople in performances, workshops, and demonstrations, plus children’s activities, savory Southern and ethnic cuisines and craft brews, non-stop participatory dancing, storytelling, parades, and more.
The Festival embraces the heritage and traditions of all Americans—from those whose families have been here for centuries or millennia to those who have more recently arrived on our shores. Prepare to be wowed as both legendary masters and the next generation of dynamic, young artists celebrate America’s musical soul and cultural roots.
