Let’s get folky, Columbus!
The Columbus Folk Music Society, WCBE 90.5 FM and Metro Parks invite visitors to the Central Ohio Folk Festival. This year, the festival will be held at Highbanks Metro Park in Lewis Center.
The free festival will feature daytime concerts, a local jam group tent, folk dance and instruction, storytelling, and children’s activities. There will also be over 40 workshops for all levels of expertise on subjects ranging from banjo to fiddle to songwriting and everything in between. Workshops prices vary.
On Saturday evening, nationally acclaimed singer-songwriter Tom Rush, accompanied by Matt Nakoa, will close out the show. Tickets for that concert are $20 and can be purchased via Eventbrite.
The Central Ohio Folk Music Fest will take place from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily from May 5 through May 6 at Highbanks Metro Park. For more information, please visit the Columbus Folk Music Society’s website.
