ABOUT THE EVENT The Connecticut Folk Festival & Green Expo is a full-day celebration held each year in New Haven’s beautiful Edgerton Park on the Saturday following Labor Day. The event includes music from across the region, delicious food and unique vendors, as well as fun and interesting experiences for kids in the Green Kids Activities area.

The Festival/Expo is dedicated to creating an unforgettable festival experience with an emphasis on sustainability and earth-friendly practices — including a zero waste plan and water fill stations. We take great pride in producing the highest quality musical experiences and presenting innovative environmental resources, as well as sharing one of the most beautiful places in the city, Edgerton Park.

These musicians have been selected as the Finalists in this year’s Grassy Hill Songwriting Competition. Each will perform a short set, before a panel of music-industry judges, during the Connecticut Folk Festival & Green Expo. The winner will receive a cash prize, will perform a short set on the Festival Main Stage later that day, and will be awarded a slot in the 2018 Festival lineup.
