The Susquehanna Folk Festival is an annual two-day music, dance, storytelling, and craft festival held on the last weekend in July at beautiful Roundtop Mountain Resort in Lewisberry, Pennsylvania (Harrisburg/York area). The festival showcases a variety of acoustic music styles including Celtic, bluegrass, old-time, blues, New England contra, and swing. The Susquehanna Folk Festival presents nationally and internationally touring artists as well as regional and local talent. The festival is handicapped accessible and is held rain or shine as all of the stages are indoors or under tents.
In addition to performances on several stages, activities also include dancing (contras, squares, and other styles), family-oriented crafts and kids concerts, workshops, jamming, and storytelling. There will be a wide selection of crafts for sale and many vendors will be demonstrating their art. Food will be available on site and a selection of craft beer and wine from local wineries will be available in the evenings.
The festival is produced by the Susquehanna Folk Music Society, an arts organization that has presented concerts, dances, workshops, coffeehouses, and jams in Harrisburg, York, and Lancaster for 30 years. Major funding comes from the York County Convention and Visitors Bureau through a tourism grant. 2018 is the inaugural year of the festival.
Whether you are a folk music enthusiast, dancer, craft lover, storyteller, or someone just looking for a weekend adventure in beautiful York County, we welcome you to the Susquehanna Folk Festival! We look forward to your being with us.
