After a hiatus in 2020 and a hybrid series of summer events last year due to COVID-19, the Susquehanna Folk Festival is back and will be held in person this year.

The 3rd annual festival will take place at the York Expo Center, August 12th through the 14th,a and will bring performances, indoor and outdoor activities, new traditions, onsite camping, and food trucks to central Pennsylvania.

Peter Lee, Executive Director of the Susquehanna Folk Music Society, said they’re excited to celebrate and honor folk music, art, and dance with the community.

“What Susquehanna Folk wants to do whether it’s a coffee house, or a concert, or a festival, is to just encourage people coming together and the community that rises around this music,” said Lee.

Lee said one thing that inspires him is that they organize a weekend festival with one paid employee, himself, and volunteers. He said this shows because they love the organization and the work that they do.
