From 2002- 2004, Bangor was the host of the 64th, 65th and 66th National Folk Festivals. In 2005, the American Folk Festival was introduced as a continuation of the Festival tradition.
The American Folk Festival on the Bangor Waterfront is a celebration of multi-cultural traditional arts - music, dance, crafts, food and storytelling.

The American Folk Festival will:

  • Present music, dance and other performing arts representing cultural traditions from across America and the world.
  • Showcase and market the Bangor Waterfront and the greater Bangor area by attracting thousands of festival-goers each year.
  • Strive to present the event free of charge to the largest possible audience.
  • Offer festival-goers the opportunity to purchase authentic, traditionally-made crafts from Maine artisans.
  • Enhance the festival experience by offering a variety of regional, ethnic and fair food.
  • Encourage community participation through volunteerism and attendance.
