The National Folk Festival features performances and demonstrations by over 300 of the nation’s finest musicians, dancers, and craftspeople. It will feature more than 40 performing groups on seven stages including a dance pavilion dedicated to non-stop participatory dancing, a Family Stage with performances appealing to both the young and the young-at-heart, and the North Carolina Traditions Stage. In addition to the performance stages, there are several themed Festival areas: the North Carolina Folklife Area, curated by the North Carolina Arts Council, the Family Activities Area, the North Carolina Arts Marketplace, and the Festival Food Courts.

The site for the National Folk Festival, a large, FREE outdoor event, is in downtown Greensboro and partially within Greensboro’s vibrant Elm Street district. A mix of open air and tented sites will provide a variety of performance venues ranging from intimate stages to amphitheater size.

NATIONAL FOLK FESTIVAL HISTORY:

An exuberant traveling festival that celebrates the diverse cultural expressions of 21st-century Americans, the National Folk Festival is produced by the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA) in partnership with communities around the country. In 2017, the National will celebrate its 77th anniversary in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Since it was first presented in St. Louis in 1934, the National has celebrated the roots, richness, and variety of American culture. Championed in its early years by Eleanor Roosevelt, the Festival was the first event of national stature to present the arts of many nations, races, and languages on equal footing. Some of the artists presented at the first festival are now legendary and the recordings and other documentation made possible by the National are precious. “Father of the Blues” W.C. Handy’s first performance on a desegregated stage was at the 1938 National. It was also the first to present to the public musical forms such as the blues, Cajun music, polka bands, Tex-Mex conjunto, Peking Opera, and many others.

The National’s three-year stay in each host city is intended to lay the groundwork for a sustainable, locally produced festival that continues after it moves on. Including Greensboro—where the Festival will be in residence from 2015 through 2017—the National Folk Festival has been presented in 28 cities. Musicians and craftspeople from every state and most U.S. territories have participated in this “moveable feast of deeply traditional folk arts.” Presented to audiences free of charge over three days, National Folk Festivals have drawn audiences of 100,000 to 175,000 annually since 1987.
