NEFolk August Festival Listing
Updated with information from their websites, we present as accurate a representation of  Northeast US festivals and music camps for the August and early September as possible. We are sorry to see several festivals will not be presented in 2012 and thank all producers and volunteers for the work they do.
All festivals/camps with dates contain current year information; "99" in the day field indicates the producer has not submitted to NEFolk current year information. Please encourage festival and camp producers/publicists to share information via email to [email protected]; one of the moderators will update the database. The table was developed over several years by J. Boudreau and cannot be used for commercial purposes without permission.
