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.
Safety has become a priority for artists and arts venues alike. In keeping with CDC guidelines and navigating through an evolving pandemic-driven landscape, CT Folk has made the decision to continue the music, and our commitment to our community. This year’s CT Folk Fest will be shared with an expanded listening audience through a virtual platform that can be watched on Facebook Live or Youtube Live.
This year’s event will feature Keller Williams, Buffalo Rose, Ruthie Foster, Among the Acres, Special Musical Guest Dom Flemons, Bumper Jacksons, John John Brown, Monica Rizzio, Diana Alvarez, Golden Oak, Grassy Hill Songwriting Competition, & More!
Additionally, our Virtual Green Expo taking place on Saturday, September 12 from 11am-3pm is dedicated to creating an unforgettable experience within an emphasis on sustainability and earth-friendly practices, and although not in person, it includes a Zero-Waste plan that we hope our audience commits to in their every day life!
Our lineup includes: Musical Folk, Urban Resources Initiative, New Britain Roots, Full of Joy Yoga, Cyril the Sorceror, musical guest Thabisa, Massaro Community Farm, Save the Sound, Nip the Knotwood, BringtheHoopla, Infinite Roots Drumming and The Puppet Show.
