Indy Folk Fest Brings Neighborhood Together Again
The Indy Folk Fest will once again gather neighbors and friends from noon to 11 p.m. on August 13 at the Indy Hostel. Featuring local musicians and artists, food vendors and microbrews provided by Upland Brewery in a laid-back atmosphere, the event is family friendly and feels as much like a picnic as it does a music festival.
Festival-goers are encouraged to bike to the event and bring chairs and blankets. Ample bike parking will be available, and lawn seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
This year’s headliners are Bigfoot Yancey, Hyryder and Punkin’ Holler Boys with many other quality acts throughout the day. The Indy Folk Fest also opens the stage to various community organizations to share the good work being done in Indiana. The voice of independent radio, WITT 91.9, will be heard and Kids First Inc. are beneficiaries of the event. Other organizations represented include Indiana Earth Charter, KidsPeace, Keystone-Monon Community Garden, among others.
A new addition to this year’s event is the Folk Fest Finale after-party hosted by The Vogue Theater and is free to all festival-goers with wristbands.
Admission: pre-sale general, $10; children 10 and under, free. Location: 4903 Winthrop Ave. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit IndyFolkFest.com.
