Thank You for Voting us Guilford’s Best Local Festival Event 😁 👐 💛

We’re honored to be in such good company with News & Record’s Battle for Guilford’s Best 2018!

Guilford’s Best

For three days in September, we joined together with 150,000 people for a cultural celebration that featured the finest traditional musicians, dancers, craftspeople and other keepers of culture in performances, workshops, and demonstrations. And we’ll do it again next September 6-8, 2019!

Here’s your chance to become a FESTIVAL INSIDER…
