KUTZTOWN, PA – The Kutztown Folk Festival has announced that its 2021 event will be virtual again.
The Festival’s board of directors has issued the following statement:
“As a precaution for the health and well-being of our event attendees, the 72nd annual Kutztown Folk Festival will be virtual. We are committed to returning in 2022 with an improved in-person festival that extends the existing model. We hope to build a true community event, rooted in the rich history of our region, which will showcase our current and dynamic local businesses, artists and artisans. In the meantime, we hope to host smaller in-person events in late summer and early fall, including a quilt sale and an in-person seminar.
Over the next few months, Festival management will work with community partners to create an exciting event for the entire region in 2022. In the weeks leading up to June 26 and through July 4, 2021, the Festival will focus on the virtual engagement. Updates from many of the event’s artisans, artists and longtime attendees will be posted to social media throughout the week, along with videos, photos and archived stories from previous years.
