Folk at the Edge

The 2021 Folk Festival has pivoted to a concert series

As we re-emerge, the safety of our community, volunteers and artists are our top priority. While we will miss our large one day CT Folk Fest & Green Expo at Edgerton Park, we have confidently pivoted to four evenings of live music at Edgewood Park.


We hope to see you at Folk At The Edge Concert Series this summer!
