Northern Appalachian Folk Festival – Call for Artists

Downtown Indiana, Pennsylvania announces a call for artists for the Northern Appalachian Folk Festival (NAFF).

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 10 Aug 2016

The Northern Appalachian Folk Festival is dedicated to preserving the past, promoting the present, and securing the future of folk music, art folkways, and other forms of cultural expression of those living in the northern tier of the Appalachian region. Through the involvement of artisans, volunteers, entertainers, and business partners, the festival presents an entertaining, educational and community driven event thereby contributing to the enrichment of the cultural environment of those living in the northern tier of the Appalachian region.

The festival features the work of artists, craftspeople, musical performers, and food vendors. NAFF also includes films, workshops, art exhibitions, excursions, and theater performances at numerous venues throughout the downtown area of Indiana, Pennsylvania.

Artists and vendors who live in or have roots in the Northern Appalachia Region are welcome to apply! An $85 early bird booth fee is available to artists who apply before April 30, 2016.

Artists will have an opportunity to share and sell their art with a large, diverse group of people in the Downtown Indiana area. This regional festival will have headliners Southern Culture on the Skids and Dar Williams who are sure to draw a crowd.

Awards will also be given to qualifying booths and fees for next year’s festival will be waived for winners.

The Northern Appalachian Folk Festival has teamed up with Downtown Indiana Inc. to bring this regional festival to the picturesque streets of Indiana, PA.

The festival is also interesting because it is not merely a festival, but a movement that is dedicated to preserving the past, promoting the present, and securing the future of folk music, art folkways, and other forms of cultural expression of those living in the northern tier of the Appalachian region.
