The Philadelphia Folk Festival began in 1962 and is the largest and longest-running Festival of its kind in the country. The event is unique in that it is presented by a non-profit arts education organization, the Philadelphia Folksong Society, and is operated with the help of 2,500 dedicated volunteers.

From the time of its inception, the event has always featured the most popular acoustic and roots artists in the world. Jackson Browne, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Pete Seger, Mississippi John Hurt, Steve Earle, Odetta, The Decemberists, Jeff Tweedy, Tom Paxton, Judy Collins, and Alison Krauss are just a few of the names that have graced the PFF stages.

Crafts are a part of the folk tradition and the Philadelphia Folk Festival is pleased to continue our expanded crafts area at the top of the concert hill. Walk through and admire the craftsmanship; watch the glassblowers, metalsmith, artists, and candlemakers at work; take home a one-of-a-kind item to help you remember the Festival during the winter. Parents please note: This is not day care. Please share this experience with your children. The Philadelphia Folk Festival Craft Show is a juried event.
