FOLK YEAH! FRIDAY FIVE- NC FOLK FESTIVAL

FRIDAY FIVE- FOLK FESTIVAL!

Food, music and fun! Come on down to downtown Greensboro for a weekend full of food trucks, drinks, and music!

The Folk Festival is back in town. For three years, Greensboro hosted the National Folk Festival, and although it has moved on to Salisbury Maryland, Greensboro will still continue to host its own festival.

Here are our top 5 things that we’re looking forward to about the Festival:

1 – FOOD VENDORS

Food is incredibly popular at this festival. Over 30 food vendors will be here over the weekend. Here are a few food trucks we plan to visit a while enjoying the festival.
