This annual festival features eight stages of traditional and ethnic dance, music, workshops, special entertainment, crafts for children, and jamming. Also featured are sales of traditional crafts, and meals. The Saturday schedule features a live KPBX Radio show. A traditional New England Contra dance will close the festival on Saturday and Sunday.
The festival is designed to support our regional folk musicians. Many local folk artists are hidden gems well worth discovering. The festival features about 100 performing groups representing Celtic, bluegrass, blues, African, Asian, Middle Eastern traditions, and more.
