The 35th Annual Woodstock Folk Festival

Sunday, July 19, Noon-6:00 p.m.
On the Woodstock Square

Who would have imagined in 1986, when Amy Beth and Melodee Ladd organized the first Woodstock Folk Festival, that it would still pull in the crowds 35 years later? But that’s exactly what happened!

On Sunday, July 19, 2020, from Noon to 6 p.m., we will gather for the 35th Annual Woodstock Folk Festival on the historic Square in Woodstock, Illinois, 47 miles northwest of Chicago.

The Festival will include a Main Stage, an Open Mic Stage, a Children’s Area and a Workshop.

Information about this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award and additional artists and information is available in the menu tabs under Festival, above.

The Festival is made possible, in part, by our Radio Partners WDCB/90.9FM, WFMT/98.7FM, and WNUR/89.3FM, the City of Woodstock, and Real Woodstock.

Since we want to make our 35th Festival an extra special day, we would greatly appreciate
your donations at any time. You can make your donation via PayPal using the button in the right column of every page, or visit our Donations menu tab for more information. And be sure to join us for our April 5th 9th Annual Invitational Concert, “The Power of Song,” to benefit the Festival!

Woodstock is a charming, historic town with lots to do and see any time of year and more than usual on the weekend of the Annual Woodstock Folk Festival. Be sure to check out While You’re in Woodstock for information about additional musical activities that weekend as well as other attractions and events.
