Welcome to Folklore Village!


 Sustainability Weekend With  The Red Squirrel Chasers

           September 9-11-Don't Miss It!

Sustainability Weekend is a holistic, hands-on festival approach for people interested in sustainable practices of all stripes. This festival has components in: architecture/historic preservation and energy efficient building, prairie and land heritage, homesteading practices, and cultural sustainability; including old-time music and dance workshops. Students will be able to learn a multitude of practical and musical skills, including log work on our 1848-era log cabin. Meals will be largely organic and locally sourced, and we will feature a special Saturday night farm-to-table dinner provided by Circle M Farms. Can't make the whole festival? Come Friday night for the concert and dance, or Saturday for the barn dance!
Learn more about the schedule, workshops, scholarships and part-time and full time options at our calendar of events page HERE!
Here's a challenge to our creative community!
Design a Folklore Village t-shirt - a design that encapsulates for you what Folklore Village is all about. Winner's design will be incorporated into the next Folklore Village t-shirt. Send designs to terri@folklorevillage.org. Here's some examples of t-shirt art (these were designed for festivals, but the concept is the same). Thanks!
We Want You!!!
