Washington Folk Festival Update
For the last two years the Washington Folk Festival has been silent while we all have struggled with a global pandemic. We are pleased to announce that we have started the planning process for a 2022 Washington Folk Festival on June 4-5, 2022. Although we can’t predict the precise constraints COVID-19 will present to us next June, we are hoping to operate, at a minimum, the four outdoor stages and the Craft Marketplace. This year will be our 40th annual Festival and we are looking for special ways to celebrate the occasion. You can follow the Festival’s development right here .
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.
