Welcome to Folklore Village!

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.
