4th Annual Brooklyn Folk Festival May 18th - 20th 2012
An unexpected loss of venue this year sent them searching for a new home. The 4th Annual Brooklyn Folk Festival will be held at 345 Jay Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Your donation will help to transform this raw space into a venue worthy of the Jalopy name!
The festival is set to be better than ever with over 30 bands, vocal and instrument workshops, film screenings, a square dance, a special program celebrating Woody Guthrie’s 100th birthday year - as well as a fun banjo activity to replace the much loved "Banjo Toss" of 2011.
Jalopy and Down Home Radio Show are committed to respectfully compensating artists while keeping the festival tickets at an accessible price range for the public. They are also inviting 100 local students to attend the festival free of charge as an educational outreach to the community. Thus, they are raising funds to help cover artist fees, advertising, space transformation, and staff. Support if you can kickstarter here
