Special Announcement Regarding the 2021 Fall Folk Festival
Due to ongoing covid-19 concerns, the Fall Folk Festival committee has regretfully decided to cancel the Live 2021 Fall Folk Festival usually held in Spokane Community College's Lair in November. Instead, the committee has again chosen to hold a Virtual Festival.
Many of the scheduled performers have already submitted videos of their performances. More are to come. The Festival committee will post these videos on our website, SpokaneFolkFestival.org, beginning Saturday, November 13.
Despite the difficulties that we have encountered because of covid-19, the Fall Folk Festival committee continues its commitment to provide a venue to showcase traditional music, dance and the arts to Spokane and the surrounding area.
Let's all work toward making it possible to hold a live 2022 Fall Folk Festival. We'll see you there.
