Portland’s Folk Festival began in 2018 at McMenamin’s White Eagle as a way for Portland musicians to come together to celebrate the burgeoning local scene and enjoy each other’s craft. It was a 12 hour love fest that started at noon and continued on until early in the morning with 24 local and regional artists performing.

The fest quickly outgrew the 125 max cap at the White Eagle and moved across the river to McMenamin’s Mission Theater. This dual level venue provided a sophisticated yet rowdy atmosphere as we expanded the festival to two days. It was a music filled frenzy that tested the patience of our pro sound techs but was a joy for the sold out audience and artists alike.

Folk Festival began its current residency at one of Portland’s most legendary venues, the Crystal Ballroom in 2020. Energy exudes from the stage that has been marinated in decades of iconic artists creating an atmosphere that feels oddly transcendent. We continue hosting this festival for the same reason we started, to bring the Portland music community together to recognize and praise each other; to build community and shower each other with appreciation. We’ll keep hosting and investing in this festival for as long as you’ll let us.
