The National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA) offers a first glimpse at the year ahead in traditional arts with the release of their 2022 Festival Season, including the National Folk Festival in Salisbury, Maine, and Folk Festivals in Lowell, Massachusetts; Butte, Montana; Greensboro, North Carolina; and Richmond, Virginia.

The National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the presentation and documentation of folk and traditional arts in the United States. Founded in 1933, it is the nation’s oldest producing and presenting organization with such a focus. Its programs celebrate and honor deeply rooted cultural expressions—music, dance, crafts, rituals and stories passed on through time in families, communities, and tribal, ethnic, regional and occupational groups.
