SIX STAGES OF MUSIC

CRAFTS, DANCE, FOOD, & COMMUNITY

FREE TO THE PUBLIC

Since its inception in 1978, the Takoma Park Folk Festival has been an event by and for the community of Takoma Park. The all-volunteer organizing committee and performers maintain the legacy of founder Sam Abbott to this day. Sam Abbott was an artist, activist, organizer, and Mayor of Takoma Park (1980 to 1986). He showed us that one person can make a huge difference. That first year, 1978, a one-stage Festival was held at Takoma Park Junior High School, and it raised about $1,100 to help keep the Takoma Theatre out of the hands of a developer. Since that time, the Festival has grown in size and stature, but it’s remained true to its roots as a celebration for the folk of Takoma Park and the wider community.
