The National Folk Festival is heading to Salisbury in September. Attendees can enjoy three days of nonstop music on seven stages.

“The National Folk Festival is a feast for the senses,” said Caroline O’Hare, local manager for the festival. “Those in attendance will get to see musicians and performers they’ve never heard before, enjoy delicious food they’ve never tasted before and experience cultures and traditions they may have never known about before coming to the festival.”

The National Folk Festival will stay in Salisbury for three years. The festival is set for Sept. 7–9 this year. Music will include blues, zydeco, Celtic, Latino, Asian, African and Eastern European, among others.

“The ability to get up-close and personal, to interact with master artists, performers and craftspeople is incredibly unique and special for people of all ages,” O’Hare said. “It is an event that you will look forward to every year.”

A mix of regional and ethnic foods, as well as classic festival foods, will be available.

Motorcoach drop-off locations will be available at the festival as well as shuttles from downtown to the festival.

“More than anything else, I hope that you enjoy your stay in Salisbury,” said Jake Day, mayor of Salisbury. “Enjoy the National Folk Festival and everything it has to offer, but also take some time to go fishing, run or mountain bike on our beautiful trails, cycle through our certified-Bicycle-Friendly Community, enjoy an amazing meal in any number of outstanding restaurants or bars we have to offer. As the capital city of the Delmarva Peninsula, we have all of this and so much more to show you!”
