Flagstaff Folk Festival, A Brief History
The Flagstaff Folk Festival was established in 2002 by FFOTM member Ken Ralston, inspired by the best of the long-running folk festivals in Prescott and Phoenix. Ken envisioned a low-cost, family-friendly festival with musicians from around the state that also kept a special place for Flagstaff’s local talent. The first few years saw great growth in size and popularity and was organized by a small but dedicated group of folks each year. Many other directors followed and continue to volunteer to make this a beloved musical event.
Please see the festival history page for more information on those who hard work and dedication kept the festival thriving all these years. In 2023, Rod Robinson took over as the current Flagstaff Folk Festival Director.
Admission is $10/person and $15/family for each day. Students and seniors are $5/person each day and children under 15 are free. Currently held at the Museum Club, we invite you to come out and see some great live music in a historic venue.
The festival is open to any musician who would like to show off their skills and perform on one of the several stages available. Musician’s come from all over the state to perform, jam and share their musical talents. Musician and volunteer signup happens in the spring.
