48th Annual Shawano Folk Music Festival

August 12, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - August 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

The Shawano Folk Music Festival is a family weekend with an eclectic mix of music, dance and activities. Fine artists and crafters line the park paths, and there is a full program for children.

Friday and Saturday evening concerts are held inside air-conditioned Mielke Arts Center, with 4 performers each night. Saturday and Sunday daytime programs include music, dance, children’s programs, craft demos, sing-alongs, and instruction on 4 outdoor stages in Shawano’s Mielke Park. Local vendors offer an array of good food, and the Open Stage invites budding musicians a chance to perform for an appreciative audience.

It’s a family weekend, and it goes on rain or shine.  Join us for an evening, a day, or the entire weekend.  The festival is sponsored by the Shawano County Arts Council, and is produced entirely by volunteers.
