The National Folk Festival kicks off in Greensboro today

Recommended Posts

Think of it as Fun Fourth on steroids with multiple stages and vendors all throughout downtown. 30 groups will be performing on 7 stages including performances at Center-City Park and at the Railyard. A downtown trolley will help shuttle people around.   There will be music covering many genres both nationally and internationally. This is the second year of a three year stint of the National Folk Festival being held in downtown Greensboro. Plenty of food,  beverages,  music and fun. Musicians and people from all over the country will be attending with an expected attendance of over 200,000 over the next three days. Thats over twice the attendance of the international home furnishings market in High Point. Next year will be the last year and afterwards,  an annual statewide folk festival (The North Carolina Folk Festival) will take its place. What a great way to showcase the new LeBauer Park and its large aerial sculpture to people from all over the country. I enjoyed the festival last year and it should be even better this year. The National Folk Festival is one of the most prestigious and longest running music festivals in America and Greensboro joins the ranks of cities such as St Louis, Denver, Dallas, Milwaukee, Washington DC and Nashville which have hosted the festival.
