The 53rd Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival takes place during the third weekend in August and is possibly the best music festival on the East Coast? Where can you go to see both national acts and emerging artists on seven different stages? For thousands of music lovers, the answer is the legendary PHILADELPHIA FOLK FESTIVAL in Upper Salford Township near the bucolic burg of Schwenksville, Pennsylvania, a little more than 35 miles outside of Philadelphia. There, an 80-acre working farm is transformed into a magical, musical city that offers three full days of music. This seminal summer event is the longest continuously-running outdoor musical festival of its kind in North America and will celebrate its 53rd Anniversary on August 15-17 at the Old Pool Farm.
