A Cool Thing You Shouldn’t Miss: Brown Folk Fest


Many of us are in need of music and festivity in order to cure very real post-Spring Weekend blues. Thankfully, tomorrow (Saturday April 19) brings the sixth annual Brown Folk Fest – a day of (hopefully) sunshine and (definitely) cool music. The festival will last from noon till 6 p.m. on Ruth Simmons Quad, and then from 6 p.m. until midnight inside Sayles Hall, meaning there are a lot of hours to hang out and look cool swaying to folk music on the Green. There will be both professional musicians and student performances.

There will also be local food and crafts vendors, which you can check out here. Jump for the full schedule and lineup:
