For those who have never been (and those who need a quick refresher), here’s what the folk festival has to offer:

  • The nation’s finest performing groups sharing the traditional arts of their region, culture and heritage
  • 4 stages of music and dance
  • Traditional craft demonstrations and exhibits
  • A children’s area with activities for the whole family
  • Dozens of food vendors offering ethnic food, regional specialties and traditional festival favorites
  • A Marketplace offering unique, handcrafted items and “Taste of Maine” treats for sale

Behind-the-scenes work has been going on sine the day after last year’s festival ended, and things are now moving at a fast and furious pace in preparation for the Aug. 28-30 festivities. Be sure to stay tuned here for even more info as the kickoff approaches.

For now, Happy 4th of July!
