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.

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