Folkmoot Festival Overview

The Folkmoot Legacy Festival – an Overview

Folkmoot invites performance groups from diverse international countries along with local Cherokee and Appalachian performers each year.  Audiences can expect approximately 200 dancers and musicians to share culture through music and dance at events throughout western North Carolina in venues between the Cherokee Qualla Boundary and Hickory, North Carolina.

Weekend events are scheduled in Haywood County, usually – but not always – including the towns of Waynesville, Canton, Maggie Valley, Clyde and Lake Junaluska.

Other events includes a Gala for Friends of Folkmoot, Camp Folkmoot for youth, A Parade of Nations and an International Festival and several special seated events including the Candlelight Closing at Lake Junaluska.
