This year's festival was amazing. The festival organizers did a great job of understanding their evolving audience demographics and delivered a lineup that was diverse, inclusive, current and entertaining. In addition to the main stage and 3 smaller workshop stages, the dance tent, complete with wooden floor, was a complete "track" unto itself. Square dance, contra dance, swing dance, cajun dance, "jam" dance (Horseflies), kids square dance...

It was the 45th annual festival and to me, it looks like the Folk Festival has a bright future.
