Humboldt Folklife Society

We are Humboldt Folklife. We strive to support and celebrate local music and dance through festivals, dances, and workshops. 

Let the folk be with you.

That's right, it's the 40th year of Folklife! We keep things moving with 8 days of music in a variety of venues, including several free events. Be sure to check out each day to map out your activity for the week. Check out the Humboldt Folklife Festival page for a full rundown.
