Welcome to the 31st Annual Anchorage Folk Festival!

With more than 120 local acts here at the Wendy Williamson Auditorium, Parlor in the Round on opening night, over 50 workshops for all ages, Folk Week, late night shows at Williwaw and 49th State, a dinner show at Charlou, a contra dance at the Student Union, and our famous Banjo Contest, there’s something for everyone at this year’s Festival, many of which are free! This wonderful opportunity allows folks of all ages to listen, experience, and participate in live music through performing, volunteering, hosting a workshop, or participating in the many jams that echo through the Lobby or around town. Whether at the Festival on campus or around town, you’ll find plenty of friends, old & new, sharing their talents and warming our winter evenings.

For Folk Fest 31, we are thrilled and proud to be bringing up THREE fabulous guest artists! We dipped into some genres that haven't been heard in recent Festivals, and we think you'll enjoy some new sounds.

We especially want to thank our Major Sponsors - the UAA CONCERT BOARD and ALASKA AIRLINES - for their continued support! And to all of our other Commercial Contributors who have supported us with ads in the program, thank you, too! Most of all, to YOU, the folks who become members of the Anchorage Folk Festival, who attend, and who volunteer time to help out backstage, in the lobby, and putting on the Festival. None of this would be possible without your generous contributions. THANK YOU!!

It’s easy to join our wonderful Festival community online, or at our table in the lobby. Then, come to our Annual Business Meeting, Sunday, January 26, 2020, at 5 pm in PSB 166. All members are welcome. See you there, and enjoy the 31st Annual Anchorage Folk Festival!
