The Brooklyn Folk Festival presents the best in American and world folk music. Located in downtown Brooklyn, NY the festival is a celebration of down home music, cultural diversity and memory. Each year we draw talent from the New York, the national and the international world of folk, traditional and vernacular music.
The annual festival provides an opportunity for community to come together, enjoy music and take part in workshops, film screenings, contests and jam sessions. The festival is produced each year with the goal of achieving an event that is more than the sum of its parts.
The Brooklyn Folk Festival is presented by the Jalopy Theatre & School of Music, a grassroots community space that is a music venue, music school, instrument store and record label. By growing the Brooklyn Folk Festival since 2009, the Jalopy has created a substantial and unique community event that brings together thousands of music lovers and hundreds of musicians to celebrate the valuable musical traditions of the world’s peoples.
The festival is held at the beautiful historic St. Ann’s Church located at 157 Montague St. between Clinton and Henry in Brooklyn Heights. The 3-day festival includes 30+ bands, vocal and instrumental workshops, a family-friendly square dance, jam sessions, film screenings, the famous Banjo Toss contest and more!
