And, oh yea, we know: you’ve gazed longingly at some of the treasures and gifts graciously flowing between Folkmoot and our magnificent dance troupes and wished, “wouldn’t something like look wonderful in my living room?”
Part of what Folkmoot means to so many people is making wishes and dreams come true and May 2 you just might make a wish become reality when Folkmoot opens up its vaults for a huge sale of trinkets, treasures and trophies collected through three decades of Folkmoot.
In addition – and as a very special added bonus – many items once part of the Historic Hazelwood School – now the Folkmoot Friendship Center – will also be offered for sale. A very special plant sale will also be available for spring and summer gardening. (Items pictured here are not necessarily for sale but represent available items.)
It’s all part of the May Day at Folkmoot Celebration set for May 2 at the Folkmoot Friendship Center, 112 Virginia Avenue, Waynesville. The celebration will also feature music and dance, international cuisine, special craft beers and coffee blends and a fun-filled day of family activities – including a May Pole!
The celebration will also be a chance for Folkmoot supporters and friends to learn about and get involved with the renewed Folkmoot, a year-round center for education, entertainment, cultural exchange, economic opportunities and a beacon for peace and understanding throughout the world.
The sale will open at 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 2, and run until 4 p.m. (but you might want to get there early, get your shopping done and hang out for the party!). Sale items will be in Friendship Center Auditorium as well as two classrooms closest to Auditorium and one level location in the building’s basement. Additional sale items will be in B Building.
The Folkmoot Ticket Office will also be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for Folkmoot USA Festival 2015, July 16-26 (Some tickets are already available here. Remaining tickets will go on sale, online, May 1.)
You won’t want to miss the biggest party – and sale – of the spring in Western Carolina!
