Plans for the 76th National Folk Festival in downtown Greensboro keep getting bigger and better! Six artists have been added to the lineup for the free weekend of fun Sept. 9-11, and more than 100,000 people are expected to attend.
About 300 artists including musicians, dancers, storytellers and craftspeople will participate in this year’s festival, along with more than 30 musical groups that will perform at several outdoor venues.
The six new artists are the Alberti Flea Circus, the Bouncing Bulldogs precision jump rope team, puppeteer Chico Simoes, the Dancing on Air Crew, storyteller Joe Bruchac, and Mangum & Company, a gospel brass band.
Co-produced by the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA) and ArtsGreensboro, the National Folk Festival is celebrating the second year of its three-year residency in downtown Greensboro.
