Flagstaff Folk Festival organizers are stepping down & seeking new ideas.
Dear FFOTM Members,
I have enjoyed attending the Flagstaff Folk Festival for most of its years in existence, and Barry and I have enjoyed running the Flagstaff Folk Festival for the past 6 years. A few months ago we announced we were stepping down because we thought it was time for someone new to take it on (or take it on in a different form). We did not get any response, so as of this time it looks like the Flagstaff Folk Festival will not happen in 2018. There were some discussions at the board meetings of how the festival might morph, but again, no one has expressed interest in running it.
There is a lot of competition from other festivals, and the weather is not always accommodating for an outdoor venue. What do members think? Is it time to put the Festival to rest? We would welcome any feedback, and again, want to express thanks to everyone for helping it to happen each year, and attending it! Please email any feedback to email@example.com.
Anne Wittke and Barry Malpas
