This year, Takoma Park is celebrating its 40 Anniversary. In 1978,
Sam Abbot decided to create a Folk Festival that celebrates Takoma Park commitment to the Arts. This first festival avoided and rejected a developer plans of destroying or changing Takoma Park Theather’s purpose. For the last 40 years, people of Takoma Park and all of the DMV Area have been part of this musical movement in support of the Arts.
This year will be no different from previous ones. As we celebrated a month ago, Woodstock’s 50 Anniversary; Takoma Park Folk Festival is not standing back and has a well prepared Festival with a great line-up of musicians. Approximately 60 performers will take the stage and share, for FREE, their talents. Music genre varies. From our deepest melodies coming from the Appalachians to the most flavorful rhythm brought to you from musicians from around the World. This is a Festival of Unity, Music, and Fraternity. Join us in this special event that takes place at the end of Summer.
If you happened to live in the DMV Area, drop by Takoma Park next September 8th, 2019. The Event starts at 10:30am and ends at 6:00pm. Some of the performances will have interpreters of sign-language for the hearing impaired. If you want to know more about performers time, here is the schedule link: https://www.tpff.org/schedule
