The festival features five performance stages running both Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM to 6 PM. Stages are either indoors or outside with covering. There is also a workshop area which will feature a number of workshops open to anyone. Besides scheduled performances there is always informal jamming taking place throughout the grounds – so if you are a musician and are not performing, feel free to bring an instrument or two along and join in a jam or workshop.

Friendly dogs on a leash are allowed outside, but it is strongly discouraged to leave your dogs in your car because it will get HOT in the sun.

No smoking is allowed on the festival grounds because there are pine needles everywhere.  Smoking is only allowed in your vehicle.

We have a number of food vendors and plenty of place to stretch out on our grounds. Festival admission includes access to both the Coconino Center for the Arts exhibits and The Arizona Historical Society Pioneer Museum.

Accommodations

Camping / RVs

A few folks have asked about camping options for the Folk Festival so we decided to add this page to answer some of your questions.  The festival grounds are small and tight, so no RVs are allowed to park onsite during the festival.

In general, there is no camping in the vicinity of the Center for the Arts or the Pioneer Museum, but it is allowed in much of the National Forest if you follow the guidelines listed in the following website:http://www.fs.usda.gov/

Closer to town, there are campgrounds that take RVs and campers.  Here is a website that has some reviews: http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/arizona/flagstaff
