INDIANA – Mark your calendars for Friday, September 11 and Saturday, September 12.
The Northern Appalachian Steering Committee is proud to announce the two day free festival returns for its third year in Downtown Indiana.
“We are even more excited to announce that Rusted Root will be headlining Saturday night,” Sean Howard, Downtown Indiana Director, said. “Among many other talented musicians throughout the two days, we anticipate this to be the biggest year for the event yet.”
In addition to live music, NAFF will feature workshops, visual art, food vendors, a children’s alley, and, new this year, storytelling, dance demonstrations, and a car show.
The committee is calling for any artists looking to showcase their talent as well as those who would hold workshops and vend food. Interested patrons from all 86 counties that make up the Northern Appalachia region, including but not limited to those in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and Maryland, are encouraged to apply online at www.northernappfolkfest.org. Please submit your applications as soon as possible to ensure your space in the festival.
A plan is also being finalized to install new electrical outputs. This upgrade will allow for an increase in the amount of food vendors. The upgrade with new electricity options will also allow for more table merchants.
The festival, which will be held on the 500 block of Philadelphia Street, in IRMC park and North 6th Street between Philadelphia Street and Nixon Avenue, seeks financial contributions through donations, and sponsorships. The festival thanks First Commonwealth, and IUP as its first round of sponsors.
The children’s alley, which will be Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. featuring a variety of activities including hula hooping demonstrations, will be funded and presented by The Evergreen Boys and Girls Club. The festival committee extends great gratitude to the organization.
