The Philadelphia Folksong Society’s mission is to preserve the past. promote the present, and secure the future of folk music and related forms of expression. The Society has worked tirelessly since March 12th 2020 to #KeeptheMusicPlaying and #KeeptheBanjoSmilng through our Digital Concert Venue. Since day one, we have kept our concerts on a Pay-What-You-Wish scale and the Festival will be no different. Yet we know that now more than ever, our extended folk family may just need some happy music and not be able to contribute this year. We want to make the Festival as approachable and accessible as possible, so if you need assistance in attending the 59th Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival, please fill out this form.
