Applications for the 2020 Susquehanna Folk Festival are now open! 

The 2020 Susquehanna Folk Festival is still scheduled for July 24-26. Though we have temporarily suspended ticket sales, we do remain hopeful, and will make a decision in late April.

Our Emerging Artist Showcase is seeking folk performers (artists, duos or groups) who are not yet regulars on the festival or concert series circuits.  If you are an acoustic musician playing roots-based styles, apply for one of five finalist spots on our Patio Stage on Saturday, July 25... and the possibility of playing a set on our Main Stage if you're selected as the winner!

Love telling tall tales and shaggy dog stories?  Our Liars Contest is looking for you.  Acclaimed storyteller Andy Offutt Irwin will emcee our contest on Sunday, July 26, with ten finalists all trying to spin the most believable (or unbelievable) story.

Most of the workers at the Susquehanna Folk Festival are volunteers, and applications are now open for that as well.  See our Volunteer Information page, or if you're already sure, go ahead and apply.

Applications for our Festival Marketplace are also being accepted from professional artisans and crafters.
