Newport Folk Festival

Dates to be confirmed


The Newport Folk Festival is an American annual folk-oriented music festival in Newport, Rhode Island, which began in July 1959 as a counterpart to the previously established Newport Jazz Festival. The festival is often considered one of the first modern music festivals in America (the Newport Jazz Festival being the first modern festival in the world, only five years earlier) and remains a focal point in the ever-expanding genre of "folk" music.
