Senior Outreach 2022

Since 1994, Folklore Village has been bringing concerts and interactive performances to older and disabled adults in our area through our Senior Outreach programs. All are welcome to our Senior Outreach events, from recently retired folks, to people living in care homes, to folks living at home and looking for fun and accessible activities. Folklore Village hosts senior concerts at Folklore Village and at partner sites throughout Southwest Wisconsin. See the listings below for more information on what we have planned!

All Senior Outreach events are free to seniors and caregivers.

Based on community feedback via surveys, here are the new expectations for individuals visiting our campus: please click HERE

Iowa and Dane County transmissibility levels and CDC recommendations for those levels will be followed. In the event that Iowa County or Dane County transmissibility moves to the “High” level, masks will be required of all attendees. Notices will be posted on the front doors as mask requirements change. Call if you have questions.

Senior Concerts at Folklore Village

Free for seniors and caregivers. Hosted in Farwell Hall at Folklore Village. Space is wheelchair-accessible. Light snacks and drinks will be provided.
