Lowell Folk Festival in Lowell, Massachusetts

Lowell Folk Festival begins July 23, 2010.

The 2010 annual Lowell Folk Festival begins on Friday July, 23 with an evening kick-off parade downtown at JFK Plaza next to City Hall (at the intersection of Merrimack St. and Arcand Drive). This parade will feature the new tradition of a flag raising of all the ethnic communities in Lowell with support from community-based cultural and ethnic organizations. This will be followed by music at two performance stages, Dutton Street Dance Pavilion and Boarding House Park.

On Saturday, July 24, the daytime festivities kick off at 12 noon and take place until 6:00 pm. Events include music, ethnic foods, crafts demonstrations and more throughout downtown Lowell.  At 6:40 pm the evening festivities kick off with a parade at Boarding House Park, followed by more great music at 7:00 pm. Evening performances take place at Dutton Street Dance Pavilion and Boarding House Park.

You can also learn more information about the two LFF parades and see the parade routes.

On Sunday, July 25, the final day of this year’s festival will run from noon through 6:00 pm at venues throughout downtown Lowell. The complete schedule is below, and more information can be found on the LFF website.
