2017 American Folk Festival Highlights Activities for Kids

Folk FestivalSt. Joseph Healthcare is proud to support this wonderful community event!

Children’s Village is a popular attraction for kids and parents alike

The American Folk Festival on the Bangor Waterfront has released the names of all of the artists scheduled to perform at the three-day festival on Bangor’s waterfront at the end of the month. As is usually the case, while the music is a significant attraction for festival-goers, it’s the unique elements of the festival that keep people coming back, and that prompt accolades like Conde Nast Traveller including the American Folk Festival in its Best Festivals Around the World feature.

Among the unique elements of the American Folk Festival is the Children’s Village, presented in 2017 by Bangor Savings Bank. The American Folk Festival offers a wide array of crafts, activities, and entertainment for kids. While the target age is between 2-12 for the Children’s Village, it is not uncommon for older children and adults to flow through the Children’s Village to enjoy the sights and sounds.

“We’ve heard from people who say that their child’s first exposure to live music is at the American Folk Festival,” said American Folk Festival executive director Heather McCarthy. “That’s likely in part due to the fact that it’s a no-admission festival, the variety of cultures represented in the music is vast, but also because there are opportunities for everyone to enjoy parts of this festival. The Children’s Village has been a unique part of the American Folk Festival over the years, and it has grown in popularity and offered new ideas for festival-goers to enjoy every year.”

New this year, the Maine Multicultural Center will be included in the Children’s Village, along with Penquis, the Bangor Chinese School and many more activities.

The Bangor Savings Bank Children’s Village will be positioned in a new location this year as well, allowing for more room to spread out.  “We are placing the Children’s Village between the Harbormaster building and the main food court on Festival grounds,” said McCarthy. “This gives a little more space for families, and closer proximity to the food court. Plus, we think the added opportunity for a photo op on a stage setting will create a fun, free keepsake for families.”

Musically, the 2017 American Folk Festival will feature blues, American banjo, Zydeco, Quebecois, Gospel, Reggae, gypsy jazz and urban street dance, among other cultures. A complete artist lineup can be found on the festival’s website at www.AmericanFolkFestival.com.

The American Folk Festival is also actively seeking volunteers to cover several areas throughout the festival. Those interested in volunteer opportunities should visit www.americanfolkfestival.com or call Denise Libby with the American Folk Festival at 207.262.7765.

About the American Folk Festival:

The American Folk Festival on the Bangor Waterfront is scheduled for August 25th, 26th, and 27th, and celebrates the roots, the richness and the variety of American culture through music, dance, traditional crafts, storytelling and food. The Festival is supported entirely by public donations that make it possible to continue to present the Festival in our community.
