The 52nd Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival returns to Old Pool Farm in Schwenksville, PA running this Thursday August 15th – Sunday August 18th. As always the Philadelphia Folk Fest is chock full of incredible music and fun with even more family-friendly activity than ever before. The Philadelphia Folk Festival is a perfect family event! You will find an unrivaled selection of attractions for the kids, especially in Dulcimer Grove, the shady area between the Crafts Stage and the Camp Stage, where puppeteers, jugglers, storytellers, hands-on crafts and of course, kid-oriented musicians make it a haven for folk fans 12 and under. Again this year, there will be a concentrated effort to have continuous programming, including interactive musical events for children and families from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Children up to 11 years of age are admitted free of charge to the concert area. Older kids, 12 to 17, are eligible for the special “youth ticket”, allowing them into the grounds for half the regular gate price, when accompanied by an adult.
The Philadelphia Folk Festival is also happy to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of WXPN’s Kids Corner with host Kathy O’Connell. Kathy welcomes Ellis Paul and other guests to the Lobby Tent on Sunday morning for a celebration of 25 years of amazing kids programming.
