Event Overview:

Since 1959, the Newport Folk Festival® has held a unique place in America’s musical and cultural history. A hub for the Civil Rights Movement in the 60s and the site of Bob Dylan’s famous switch to electric guitar in 1965, the festival also hosted the first major appearances of Joan Baez, James Taylor, Joni Michell and Arlo Guthrie, and sparked the revival of gospel, Cajun and blues. Today the festival still serves the musical omnivores, the fans who crave innovation but appreciate tradition.

About Newport Festivals Foundation, Inc.:

Newport Festivals Foundation, Inc. was created in late 2010 by George Wein who realized that the best chance of having the Newport Jazz Festival and the Newport Folk Festival continue after his passing, was to start a 501 (C) (3) non-profit corporation. Since the early 1960’s Mr. Wein ran a successful for profit business with his company, Festival Productions, Inc. but having gone through good and bad economies with ticket sales and long term sponsorships, he understood that the key to the future of his festival “children” lay in getting grants and donations from interested foundations and from the many fans of these events. What people might not know was that these festivals originally started as non-profits.

There may be many networking opportunities at the Newport Folk Festival 2016. Find out more in the event details below.
