The Lowell Folk Festival is one of the largest FREE folk festivals in the US, and takes place in the historic footprint of downtown Lowell.  Since the first festival in 1987, organizers have maintained the original grass-roots, access-for-all philosophy, and so the festival has kept its unique and distinctive atmosphere – all for FREE!  (To help keep the Festival free, visit
