We offer a number of programs both at the Festival and year-round to engage and inspire our folk community.
For aspiring musicians, we host music classes at The Folk Exchange and have a program for youth to work one-on-one with Folk Fest performers. We have local musicians go into schools that don't have a sophisticated musical curriculum to explore instrumentation and songwriting with the students.
The Millennium Library is an great, central location for us to host bi-weekly folk concerts. Anyone can come down to one of these free shows and enjoy a Saturday afternoon of festival-style live music!
Another program we offer allows community groups who's members haven't had the opportunity to attend the festival to experience Folk Fest for a day – on us!
