NORTHERN APPALACHIAN FOLK FESTIVAL, INC.
Always the weekend after Labor Day
In Honor of the 100th year Anniversary of Woman's Suffrage
NAFF Inc. celebrates "The Year of the Woman"
Due to the conronavirus the Northern Appalachian Folk Festival has cancelled most of its programs including music presentations, art exhibitions, children’s alley and the participation of venders.
Based upon the theme “The Year of the Woman: Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote,” the festival will continue to present its “Walk of Fame” ceremony which honors individuals from the northern Appalachian region who have made significant contributions in different areas. This years year’s inductees include: Lucy Donelly for education, Marilyn McCusker human rights, Bernice Gera human rights, Peggy Clark environment Dr. Rachel Levine for health, and Abby Morris the arts.
The ceremony will take place at noon on Saturday, September 12th in front of Spaghetti Benders restaurant on 565 Philadelphia Street in downtown Indiana. We will take precautions with masks and social distancing.

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 2019 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.
