The Wheatland Music Festival in Michigan is a great festival. I got to sit and listen to Odetta do "Pastures of Plenty" and accompanied by a single guitar. Thought to meself "Now I can die". It is becoming a little too institutionalized these days for my taste, but I still wouldn't miss it. Not near enough pickup sessions but still a lot of great instrument workshops, dancing workshops and activities for the kids. And a super lineup of trad acts. You must get tix early though as they sell out quickly. It is always held the weekend after Labor Day (which is a US holiday which marks the end of summer vacation)
