Spokane Fall Folk Festival
Saturday, November 9,
One event on Sunday, November 10, 2019 at 11:00 am
The Spokane Folklore Society’s Fall Folk Festival is free to the public and features eight stages of traditional and ethnic dance, music, workshops, special entertainment, crafts for children, and jamming. Also featured are sales of traditional crafts.
The Saturday schedule features a live KPBX Radio show. A traditional New England Contra dance closes the Festival on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
The Festival is designed to support our regional folk musicians. Many local folk artists are hidden gems well worth discovering. The Festival features about 100 performing groups representing Celtic, bluegrass, blues, African, Asian, Middle Eastern traditions and more.
About 5,000 people attend the Festival each year.
Several hundred volunteers are needed to work the days of the Festival. The Festival is supported through donations from sponsors and individuals, and by selling buttons at the Festival. The Festival committee needs to raise about $20,000 each year to produce the Festival and to pay for rent, sound equipment, craft supplies, publicity, printing, security and required building staff. All performers and Festival organizers donate their time.
Plan to spend the weekend or just drop by when you can. There is always something terrific going on during the Festival. Additionally, you can tune into KPBX 91.1 FM to hear a live broadcast from the Festival.
Meals and snacks are available in the Spokane Community College cafeteria. In addition, we have baked goods and coffee available at the Festival Bake Sale.
