4th Annual Baltimore Folk Fest
Saturday, October 24th : 6pm
2549 North Howard Street : Baltimore 21218
$20 – General Admission / $60 – VIP Admission
Since it’s inception in 2012, the festival has grown yearly in size and reach to include numerous venues with multiple stages and dozens of artists. By scaling back to just one venue and two stages this year, Baltimore Folk Festival aims to give fans and artists a better experience. With stages upstairs and downstairs, attendees can easily bounce back and forth, not missing any of the artists playing this year. Scaling back on the number of artists performing this year has allowed BFF to invite some first-rate musicians. Baltimore Folk Fest continues to set itself apart from similar festivals by putting the spotlight on local music—highlighting artists that work hard, play great music, and make an impact in their cities and local music community.
