Ever think of Folkmoot as an advertising medium?
Well, perhaps you should! In addition to being North Carolina’s Official International Folk Festival and a 35-year-old, 10-day summer extravaganza of sight, sound, dance, beauty, color and grace Folkmoot draws as many as 20,000 visitors each July to events all over Western Carolina.
Our official guidebook – which has also become a treasured souvenir and tends to be featured prominently on coffee tables in homes all over the nation – sees an annual printing of 5,000.
We have ads available in our guidebook ranging in size (and price) from a 1/6th page ad to a full page ad to inside our front and back covers or, even, our back cover. Ad sales are open now and you can contact us here to inquire (put “advertising” in the subject line). Please see our advertising rate card below.
You can advertise in our event playbills – many events all over Western Carolina, including Asheville.
Folkmoot 2018 opens July 19 and runs through July 29 and will feature performing dance troupes from Ghana, Italy, Czech Republic, Chile, Venezuela and Northern Cyprus andThailand as well as Anglo Appalachian and Cherokee dancers and musicians.
You can see them all, featured together and with videos, on our Folkmoot Performers of 2018 page.
Advertising at Folkmoot events and in our literature not only associates your business or firm with one of the most prestigious festivals in the nation, it also allows you to support the cultural exchange and peace-building at the core of Folkmoot’s mission.
Folkmoot 2018 promises to be the grandest festival yet and becoming part of the Folkmoot family means you also have an inside track to our growing number of year-round events, showcases and classes.
Any way you choose to advertise your business or organization you will know you will be reaching a very select (and affluent) audience, you will be an active participant in the beauty and pageantry that is Folkmoot and you will be helping build a better world through cultural exchange, art, music, dance and peace-building.
