We invite you to enjoy the colourful and imaginative work of the Festival's folk artists; browse photo albums showing our featured artists; watch videos of artists talking about their work.
Over 60 folk artists will be at the Festival. The result? From noon to four, the Arena is transformed.
The reason? It must be the dancing chickens, bearded fishermen, alluring mermaids, colorful fish, and smiling people.
This year marks the passing of three long time participants in the festival: Henry Boudreau, Ted Evans and Joe Winters.
