Fall Folk Festival Saturday

DOVER-FOXCROFT — The Maine Highlands Council for the Arts is pleased to announce the return of the Fall Folk Festival, after a three-year hiatus, from 2-8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Central Hall Commons. The Festival has the best elements of a quality craft fair, along with showcases and demonstrations by the vendors and craftspeople who are participating. Among the vendors will be woodworkers, maple syrup producers, fiber arts, stone sculptures by Penobscot sculptor Tim Shay, and much more.

There will be live music throughout the day, from the local ukulele club to Gypsy Soul Blues, Argentine tango, and traditional Korean dance. Roberta Jarvis will present the Piscataquis County Song as well! The evening will feature the headline group New Relm with their beloved blend of country and western style music. 

Home -baked goods, chili (both meat and vegetarian options) and coffee, tea, and cider will be available for sale.

The Fall Folk Festival is a major fundraiser for the Maine Highlands Council for the Arts and the Central Hall Commons. A small admission will be charged for the whole day. Suggested donation will be $5 per person, $8 per family, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. 

This promises to be a fun and fulfilling way to spend a November afternoon. For more information, email or call Allison Aldrich Smith at 207-598-6398.
