The 35th Annual Natchitoches-NSU Folk Festival will be held July 18-19 in Prather Coliseum on the Northwestern State University campus.  

Hours are 4:30 p.m. until 11:15 p.m. on Friday the 18th and 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. on Saturday the 19th. This year’s theme is “Tricentennial Natchitoches: Celebrating Louisiana’s Folk Heritage.”  The Festival is one part of a series of events in the year-long Tricentennial celebration of the oldest permanent settlement in the Louisiana Purchase.

Along with music, food, and crafts, there will also be narrative sessions and demonstrations both days.  As is usually the case, the Annual Louisiana State Fiddle Championship will also be a part of the Festival.  It’s scheduled for Saturday afternoon.

Tickets are $11 for a two-day pass, available in advance only.  You can take in all of the Saturday events for $8 or a one-time evening pass to all events after 5 p.m. is available for $5.  More information is available at the Festival website
