Year 5! Half a decade of Folkfaces Fest! We are so excited to get back doing what we love! Expect all the familiar faces and some new ones too! This years event will be space/alien themed! Covid regulations will be observed. Getting your vaccine or a negative covid test within a week before strongly encouraged for attendees.

Folkfaces Fest is a celebration of roots music, community, and culture in Western New York and beyond. Hosted by the band Folkfaces. This will be the 5th annual year. The date for this year is September 30th-October 3rd at Cherry Hill Campground in Darien Center, NY (between Rochester and Buffalo) right across from a theme park! Over the last 4 years we have hosted Dom Flemons, Abby the Spoon Lady, Aaron Jonah Lewis, Yes Ma’am, Woody Pines, Richie and Rosie, Baby Gramps, Cristina Vane, The Ditrani Brothers, Feral Foster, Shine Delphi, and many others… and this year we are doing a space/alien theme calling it “2021: a folkface odyssey” riffing on Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: a space odyssey. Join us and let’s get weird.
