Event Description

On Saturday, September 9, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., CT Folk presents its annual free Folk Festival and Green Expo in New Haven’s beautiful Edgerton Park. [$5 suggested donation to continue CT Folk's efforts, but no one will be turned away.]

 

CT Folk unveils a festival line-up that celebrates the best in folk music and more. Livingston Taylor and The Ballroom Thieves co-headline on the main stage, preceded by Forlorn Strangers. Connecticut's State Troubadour, Kate Callahan, will also be among the day's performers. New this year, the NewAlliance Foundation Performance Tent will host a diverse group of performers, including Thabisa, a vocalist originally from South Africa, an interactive Healing Drums workshop and performance with percussionist Michael Mills, Flamenco guitarist Val Ramos, and vocalist / folklorist Tere Luna. This venue also hosts “Be Green” presentations and garden tours. Musical performers may also greet you at the park's entrances. 

The Green Expo showcases more than 60 exhibitors, featuring handmade items, food products and other innovative ideas for sustainable lifestyles. For families, the Green Kids’ Village offers hands-on activities and entertainment to engage children of all ages, including yoga and hooping workshops, an arts and creativity corner, recycling magic with Cyril the Resourcerer, and our big puppet parade at 3:45pm. Food trucks and a Beer and Wine Garden (over 21) round out the Festival's offerings.

Now in its second decade, The CT Folk Festival has grown into one of Connecticut’s leading folk festivals, while the Green Expo has become the largest Expo of its kind in the state. The diverse mix of music, green expo and fair, kids' zone, and food and drink offers something for everyone.
