The Arts Council’s 37th International Folk Festival

Folk Festival 2015Travel around the world in one weekend — without even leaving downtown Fayetteville! Celebrate our community’s cultural diversity with music and dance, arts and crafts and international food.

Fayetteville has a rich and long history of celebrating its multicultural population. Years ago, a group of forward thinking citizens got together to create the International Folk Festival as a celebration of our diversity. Now approaching its 37th year, the International Folk Festival has become a weekend-long celebration.

The International Folk Festival was created to celebrate the richness of the diverse cultural roots of our community. By showcasing historic artistic customs and traditions of a culture, the festival strives to foster an appreciation of our diversity while preserving the historical and traditional art forms that infuse a culture with its specific identity. The purpose and scope of the festival is to present the arts and creative expression of all of our community’s ethnic and cultural groups with a professional approach.
