Folklore Village has now partnered with Amazon's Smile program!
Every time you shop on Amazon, through the Smile program, a portion of your purchase will be donated to Folklore Village. If you've been looking for a small way to give back to Folklore year round, selecting us through Smile would be great!
Folklore Village is a nationally recognized folk arts and culture center dedicated to enriching lives through time-honored traditions. Since 1968, thousands of people of all ages have come to Folklore Village to gather with friends, meet new people, to eat, dance, sing and play. Come study with a master fiddler… sing with a gospel choir… dance until midnight… learn to spin wool… feast on jambalaya… join a back porch jam session… plant prairie flowers… or picture yourself as a student in a real 1890 schoolhouse… pass it on.
Our 2016 Fund Drive You did it!!! You helped us reach our fundraising goal! Thanks to you, Folklore Village will be able to continue to provide quality programming, repair our infrastructure needs, pay our bills, and reach out to new audiences. Thank you sincerely from all of us here at Folklore Village.
Our goal - $100,000 for the 100th!
Fund raising constitutes over 1/2 of our yearly operating budget.
Many thanks to the "Friends of Folklore Village" who donated $28,000 to this fundraising goal!
