Philadelphia Folk Festival | August 16-18, 2024

The 61st Philadelphia Folk Festival is scheduled for the weekend of August 16, 17, and 18, 2024, on the Old Pool Farm in Upper Salford Township, PA. Tickets are on sale now to this iconic event, purchase here.

The Festival is the largest program of the Philadelphia Folksong Society, a non-profit membership organization located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In 2023, the Festival “took a pause” and was not produced. This allowed the Board of Directors time to restructure the operations of the Folksong Society, reduce the financial debt, and redefine the Festival as a sustainable event.

The 2024 event will re-emerge as a smaller overall event than in the recent past, serving nearly 5,000 patrons daily with several music stages, educational workshops, crafts, and on-site camping.
