MORE THAN A MUSIC FESTIVAL

Welcome to the original Northern Appalachian Folk Festival, Inc. NAFF initially began in 2013 by Jim Dougherty through his passion and interest in Appalachian history. Through this event, he strives to share what’s so wonderful and interesting about the areas that make up Northern Appalachia through educational seminars, music, movies, and more.

THE LINEUP

The 2022 Northern Appalachian Folk Festival, Inc. will feature two days of music, food, street vendors, beer, and Northern Appalachian history on our downtown's main street. 

We will also be honoring a new list of influential people for the Walk of Fame as well as raising money for our local community center. 

NAFF Inc. will follow CDC / State mandates and  guidelines for the 2022 Folk Festival.
