This one-day event will be held for free (donation requested) on Saturday, January 6, 2018 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Centre County, 780 Waupelani Drive Ext, State College, Pennsylvania 16801.


Taste of Folk College is:

• an opportunity for people who haven't been to Folk College and Greenwood Furnace Folk Gathering to see what it's about in a free 1-day event


It's for people who play an instrument, people who wish they played an instrument, and people who just like to listen.


The event runs from 3 to 10 but you're welcome to drop in at any time.

All instruments (guitars, whistles, fiddles, cellos, mandolins, hurdy gurdies, banjos, dulcimers, ukuleles, voices, accordions, keyboards, percussion and things we've forgotten) are welcome!


Bring a dish to share. We'll have places for crock pots and use of the refrigerators. We'll provide beverages and paper products. We ask for a donation (no specific amount) to cover the cost of the space rental and incidentals, with any excess helping to fund Folk College.


If you already know what happens at Folk College, bring a friend with you to share the experience! Show your friends why you come back year after year.


We hope to see you there!
