Make your plans now to join us in the heartland of North Carolina for The National Folk Festival—one of America’s largest, most prestigious, and longest-running celebrations of arts, culture, and heritage. Best of all, this three-day celebration is FREE! No tickets needed!
The 76th National Folk Festival dates are September 9-11, 2016!
In choosing Greensboro as the National Folk Festival Host City for 2015, 2016, and 2017, the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA)—the organization that created and has produced the National Folk Festival since its founding in 1934—recognized Greensboro’s and North Carolina’s unique cultural assets and strong community spirit.
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 over 300 of the nation’s finest traditional musicians, 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.
