2013 marks 100th anniversary of North Carolina Folklore Society promoting the appreciation and study of North Carolina’s folk life. The Society, along with the North Carolina Folklife Institute and many partners are celebrating this momentous anniversary and invites the public to enjoy this daylong festival.
North Carolina is home to one of the nation’s oldest and most vibrant communities of traditional arts and folklife, and the town of Carrboro is a natural location with easily accessible spaces for festival attendees to enjoy a walkable feast of food, art and craft, demonstrations, hands-on activities, music and more.
This project made possible in part by funding from The National Endowment for the Arts, the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, the Fox Family Foundation with substantial assistance from the Town of Carrboro and the Carrboro Recreation and Parks Department
