Folklore Village is a nationally recognized folk arts and culture center dedicated to enriching lives through time-honored traditions. For over 50 years, Folklore Village has been the choice for presenting and maintaining the traditional arts. Thousands of people of all ages have come to Folklore Village to gather with friends, meet new people, to eat, dance, sing and play. Come study with a master fiddler… sing with a gospel choir… dance until midnight… learn to make a basket… feast on jambalaya… join a back porch jam session… plant prairie flowers… or picture yourself as a student in a real 1890 schoolhouse… pass it on.
* Special note regarding COVID-19. As both the CDC and the WHO have declared the global public health emergency for Covid-19 to be over, Folklore Village now happily welcomes all – regardless of vaccination status. Likewise, medical face masks will not be required, but for all who choose to continue to mask, you may bring your own, or use one that Folklore Village can provide. Thanks to everyone for helping us keep our community, including our staff, free of COVID throughout this most challenging of times.
