About the Festival

About the Kansas City Folk Festival

Kansas City Folk Festival is a free, all-day city festival that celebrates the folk arts of our neighborhoods, region and beyond. With multiple stages, music, poetry, dance, storytelling, folk art, demos, workshops, local food vendors, a craft market, wellness tent, kid’s area and more, our folk fest has a little something for everyone.

Kansas City Folk Festival values equity and sustainability as a legacy for future generations (and festivals). Grassroots in nature, we are dedicated to being family and earth-friendly.


Logo Design Statement

The mark was created by local graphic designer Frank Norton. The fountain and the strings unify to create a strong positive symbol while the deco line work is a tribute to Kansas City’s architectural identity and a nod to the city’s “Heart of the Nation” icon designed by Patrice Jobe.
