Folkmoot is grateful for our community!

Happy Thanksgiving to all! It’s the time of year when we gather to express our gratitude for all we have and above all, Folkmoot is grateful for our community!

Folkmoot would not exist, of course, without the countless hours contributed by nearly countless volunteers and all of them were honored in August with a special luncheon and party at which they were handed individually crafted thank-you gifts created in pains-taking detail by the paid Folkmoot staff (and still other volunteers).

Folkmoot has been a community effort of Waynesville, Haywood County and all of Western North Carolina for over three decades now and strives each year to bring the world to Main Street through dance and music and the exchange of cultures from all over the globe.

And among the many, many people, groups and businesses which make Folkmoot a reality we are especially grateful this year as we strive to become a year-round asset to our community, our region, our nation and, yes, the world.

We are grateful for…
