Jan Bell leads the Songwriting Workshop. Nestled among the hills and fields of southwestern Indiana, the Ferdinand Folk Festival, set in beautiful 18th Street Park, provides a unique, family and earth-friendly opportunity for people from the region to share a day of live music, art, and environmental/wellness education. The festival is FREE and the year-round project of many community volunteers, sponsors, and supporters. Hundreds of hours of labor donated by community-minded citizens combined with the generosity of our donors make the festival a fun gathering for all ages.
Enjoy a full day of live, original music on the NextEra Energy Main Stage, solar-powered by Whole Sun Designs Inc. On the Kyana Woodstock Market Stage, enjoy some of the region's best singer-songwriters. Throughout the park, children activities, sponsored by co-presenting MasterBrand, can enjoy fun, interactive music programs, yoga for kids, a dog and clown show, storytelling, a concert, and much more. Also, surrounding the Market Stage, visit the large and diverse array of artisan and food booths, along with many environment and wellness exhibits and demonstrations in the shaded market area. Special thanks to Best Home Furnishings for co-presenting the festival. We welcome the citizens of Ferdinand and the surrounding communities to our town's beautiful 18th Street Park. We wish each of you in attendance a wonderful day of relaxation, music, art, education, and fun. Be safe and enjoy your day!
