The Brooklyn Folk Festival strives to present the best in American and world folk music. Located in the heart of Brooklyn, NY our festival is a celebration of down home music, cultural diversity and memory. Each year we draw talent from New York’s own thriving folk music scene as well as from the national and international world of folk, traditional and vernacular music.
The annual festival provides an opportunity for young and old alike to come together, enjoy music, workshops, film screenings, contests and jam sessions and be part of the vitality of our community. The festival is produced each year with a strong sense of vision and attention to detail with the goal of achieving an event that is more than the sum of its parts.
The Brooklyn Folk Festival is presented each year 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, 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.
