GREENSBORO, NC (WGHP) – The North Carolina Folk Festival is back!
Starting Friday, the folk festival will fill downtown Greensboro with music for the first time since 2019 after the event was forced to move online in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sponsored by FOX8 and other local, state and national organizations, the event highlights the meaningful ways in which communities express their creativity and cultural traditions through music, dance, food, crafts and other folk arts.
The three-day event is free.
The TowneBank Stage will return to LeBauer Park and the Lawn Stage is back at the corner of Sternberger Place and Commerce Place.
Lee Wrangler Stage will occupy the plaza at the corner of Davie Street and Friendly Avenue, the former home of CityStage.
The Old Courthouse Stage is new for 2021. You can find it on West Market Street, near the corner of John Wesley Way.
The festival will kick off with opening remarks at 5:30 p.m. Friday on the Lee Wrangler Stage. Immediately afterwards, guests can participate in the Community Jam Festival sponsored by the UNCG Old-Time Ensemble. Members of the audience can bring their instruments and play as the ensemble weaves its way through the Jam community festival playlist.
