It’s been a little bit like hibernation. Okay, it’s been a lot like hibernation. The days are getting longer, the clocks are about to spring forward. We’ve got a lot on our plate for the next few months, but it’s time to start letting you see what’s in store for Summerfolk. We’ll be adding names to the performer’s page for the whole month of March, culminating in the addition of the Youth Discovery winners on March 30th.
Early Bird Tickets are on sale until March 31st
