About the National Folk Festival

Since it was first presented in St. Louis in 1934, the National Folk Festival has celebrated the roots, richness and variety of American culture. Championed in its early years by Eleanor Roosevelt, it was the first event of national stature to present the arts of many nations, races, and languages on equal footing. It was also the first to present to the public musical forms such as the blues, Cajun music, a polka band, Tex-Mex conjunto, Peking Opera, and many others. Today, the National is an exuberant traveling festival—produced by the NCTA in partnership with communities around the country—a festival that embraces the diverse cultural expressions that define us as a people in the 21st century.

With an annual budget of nearly $2.8 million, ArtsGreensboro is a catalyst for innovation to build
recognition and support for the arts. Through the 17DAYS Arts & Culture Festival, power2give, and
other opportunities like the National Folk Festival, ArtsGreensboro is driving the health and vitality
of our community through support for arts education, celebrating the diversity of Greensboro, and

About the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA)
