Washington Folk Festival Update
The Folklore Society of Greater Washington (FSGW) and Glen Echo Partnership for Arts and Culture (GEPAC) are sorry to announce that we are unable to present the Washington Folk Festival this year (2021) due to the continuing effects of the pandemic.
We plan to return in 2022 with the 40th WFF. In the meantime, FSGW and GEPAC will present a live-streamed music and dance event from Glen Echo at 7:30 PM on June 6 featuring past festival performers.
We will update this page as more information becomes available.
The Washington Folk Festival is produced by the Folklore Society of Greater Washington and the Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture, in partnership with the National Park Service and Montgomery County, Maryland. Support for the festival comes from the Richmond Folk Festival, the National Folk Festival, and Focus. WOWD-LP Takoma Park 94.3 FM is the official media sponsor while Bluegrass Country radio provides additional backing.
