2022 Takoma Park Folk Festival Musical Program


This year's festival will be coming to you in person at the Takoma Park Middle School on September 11, 2022. Watch here for the upcoming list of performers. 

Last year’s Takoma Park Folk Festival came to you live-streamed and showcased the best local talent that could fit into a condensed schedule. The Festival featured its usual diverse program of music, including traditional folk and roots with more than a little soul, rock, and topical thrown in. Performers ranged from well-known local musicians and songwriters, to emerging artists who were already making their mark on the area’s music scene.

TPFF on WOWD:  Performers in the 2021 Takoma Park Folk Festival talked with hosts of WOWD radio in lively and enlightening interviews.
