FESTIVAL MISSION: To showcase performers of traditional folk music common to America, including old-time, bluegrass, Cajun, Irish, blues, and more and to bring together the essential supporters of American roots music in a historic beautiful setting.
EVENT DETAILS: Local and regional musicians will perform traditional folk music common to America in a continuous series of concerts throughout the day on two stages beginning at noon. There will be a square dance to end the festivities. Everybody is welcome to dance - no experience necessary. All dances will be taught on the spot. The dance will run from approximately 6:30 pm until 7:30 pm. In addition to excellent music and historical exhibits, there is food, refreshments, CDs from the performers, and festival t-shirts will be available for purchase. And as always, musicians are encouraged to bring their instruments. Spontaneous jamming is strongly encouraged. Tickets will be available at the gate on the day of the festival. Bring lawn chairs and blankets! If it rains, the event will take place inside, so don’t let any wet weather scare you away!
