GREAT LAKES FOLK FESTIVAL MUSIC SCHEDULE IS ONLINE!

The MSU Museum's Great Lakes Folk Festival performance schedule is now online!  The schedule is presented using a new online event-management platform, also used by some of our fellow festivals. The schedule can be viewed on your computer and even right on site on your smart phone. There are also info pages about each performer, and information about the Grassroots Green stage sessions that are an important part of the Festival.
 
Check it out here: http://www.greatlakesfolkfest.net/Schedule/, invite your family and friends, and join us Aug. 12-14 in downtown East Lansing for a celebration of culture, tradition and community.

Note: the schedule is always a work in progress- more information about this year's performers will be added and the stage schedule is subject to change.

 
Thanks to the City of East Lansing for sponsoring the music program, featuring Cajun, Celtic, klezmer, blues, bluegrass, Chinese, Middle Eastern, French-Canadian, Tex-Mex and more. Find music samples here: http://www.greatlakesfolkfest.net/Programs&Activities/Music%26Dance/

 
 
HUNGRY FOR MORE? GET A TASTE OF TRADITIONS!
Just as we present a diverse, authentic menu of musical traditions, we do in our foodways area as well! Look forward to Native American, Mexican, Greek, Middle Eastern, Indian and more cultural traditions.
 
We're also pleased to welcome back the Taste of the Great Lakes craft beer and wine tent, located near the Dance Stage, in partnership with the Lansing Jaycees!

 
 
RIDE THE CATA ROUTES!
Thanks to the Capital Area Transportation Authority for extending bus service for our festival attendees! This popular option lets visitors park-and-ride, and buses run approx. every 10 minutes.
 
Green Route: Lot 91 (MSU campus), Service Road and Hagadorn
Red Route: Abbot Center (1500 Abbot Road, East Lansing)
 

 
 
THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS!
