It’s a Wrap! Thanks for supporting the 11th Annual C-U Folk & Roots Festival.

The 2019 Festival is in the history books. Thanks for coming out! Even on a cold and rainy Saturday we had great crowds. Huge gratitude to all the volunteers who made it possible. Hey, let’s do it again next year!

The Champaign-Urbana Folk and Roots Festival is an all-volunteer-run, grassroots festival that brings together national, regional and local artists and folk organizations for over 80 high-quality folk performances and participatory activities throughout downtown Urbana. The festival includes performances, dances, instructional sessions, jams, song-circles, family activities, storytelling, instrument-making and much, much more! The festival has a particular interest in evolving and unique forms of folk music and art, especially forms that break down barriers between audience and performers, while also providing the occasion to preserve local traditions and histories.
