A Cool Thing You Shouldn’t Miss: The Brown Folk Festival is this weekend


Before campus gets completely overrun by nervous high school seniors for ADOCH, unwind a little at the Brown Folk Festival. Perfectly timed with this bizarrely sudden start of spring, the festival is this Saturday, the 13th from noon until midnight. Assuming that the weather stays as lovely as it has been, the festival will start on Lincoln Field Simmons Quad and move to Sayles at 6 p.m. Beyond the awesome music and the opportunity to show off your folksy dance skills, there will be local food and craft vendors, awesome student designed t-shirts on sale, and jam circles.
