Now celebrating its second year, the North Carolina Folk festival will offer a new way to support the event and keep the festival FREE with a flavor-filled evening of local cuisine!

Tickets are now on sale for the NC Folk A’Fare, a new culinary event that celebrates the global cuisines of Greensboro!

Preceding the NC Folk Festival, this event will bring several of Greensboro’s diverse restaurants and caterers together for a tantalizing trip around the culinary globe. By presenting a tasting menu of signature dishes and showcasing the city’s rich and diverse dining scene, this limited-ticket event will help raise funds for the NC Folk Festival.

“We're excited to showcase the multicultural flavors that are a part of Greensboro’s palate,” said Amy Grossmann, Director of the North Carolina Folk Festival. “Not only will this give the public a way to support the festival, but it will also expose them to some of the cuisines that are available in our community year-round. We are so thankful for our restaurant partners who will make the inaugural NC Folk A’Fare possible.”
