Successful Day 1 at American Folk Fest 

A successful day one of the American Folk Festival.

Vendors, artists and musicians are pulling out all the stops for this yearly Bangor tradition. The festival is in its 13th year and plenty of people come from near and far to hear the bands, see the art and taste the food.

There’s also hundreds of volunteers who pull the entire event together.

“It really makes us a cultural hub. People come to Bangor for the arts for the folk festival and that’s spread throughout the community in a lot of different ways and its really a positive weekend in bangor and I’m pretty happy to have it in Bangor each year,” says Bangor City Council Chair, Ben Sprague.

The American Folk Festival runs all weekend long. For a list of concerts and times, see this link:
