We're coming back singing!

For the Shawano Folk Music Festival, 2020 turned out to be the year that wasn't. We had a great year planned. but it was all put on hold so everyone could stay healthy. This year, we're back - with something a little different. When we started planning, we weren't sure what August would bring for us, for our musicians, or for you. So we took the questions and the unknowns and turned them into something good.

The 2021 Festival will be a little different:

  • One day only (Saturday, August 14, 2021).  11:00 am - 4:00 pm

  • At a different location.  Franklin Park in downtown Shawano.

  • It's free!  No need to buy a ticket!  It's one way we can say thank you, and welcome back. 

  • There's only one stage, and it'll be filled all day with some pretty incredible music

  • Bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on, or enjoy one of the park's picnic tables

  • It's daytime only. No evening concerts indoors

  •  Our new neighbor for 2021 is the Shawano Farmers Market.  How cool is that?

  • Special Pre-Festival Programs June 12 and July 10!

Yet some things don't change:

  • Some of the finest musicians you'll find anywhere. Some are old friends, others are new to Shawano

  • It's live music!  You will sing and dance together!

  •  Old friends, good music and summer sunshine.

  • Quilt Raffle.  It's beautiful.  Need we say more?  You could be the winner ...

  • We'll be so very happy to see you again and sing with you again.
