Midland Folk Music Festival

The Folk Music Society of Midland presents the

August 23 - 26,  2018
Location: Midland County Fairgrounds (6905 Eastman Rd., Midland, MI)

Folk Music Society Festival


Admission is $10 for those who are not yet FMSM members, and $5 for those who have joined FMSM.  This provides access to all workshops, concerts, dances, open mics, and other activities at the festival.  You are responsible for bringing your own chair to workshops. 

Camping, with full hook-ups, is available for $20/night.  PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE BEFORE 9AM ON MONDAY, AUGUST 20TH.  The Midland County Fair runs through Sunday, August 19th, and the fair people, who have been there all week, are as anxious to leave as you are to arrive, so PLEASE ALLOW THEM THE COURTESY of having time to pack up, unhook, dump out, pull out and be on their way.

The EVENT SCHEDULE will be posted as it becomes available.  Planning and scheduling workshops is like solving Rubik's Cube, and requires an advanced college degree to assemble.  Very few workshops provide seating.  Workshop schedule changes will be posted on the whiteboard at the Campground Registration tent, and also on whiteboard in the Fair Center. 

Pets must be leashed and controlled. No electronic instruments are permitted.  Alcohol is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

In fairness to the vendors, who are located in the fair center (Gerstacker Building) and have paid a fee for the privilege of vending, campsite vending of items must stop at noon on Thursday.

Please arrive at workshops with instruments already in tune!  No smoking in workshops or workshop areas - no ifs, ands, or butts about it!  ;-)

This event is sponsored in part by a grant from the Rollin M. Gerstacker Foundation
