Folk Fest winds down announces 2021 date

The 2020

wrapped up at 11 p.m. Saturday night with the upbeat message it will return on Aug. 28, 2021. Mark it on your calendar.

The drive-in format proved both fun and effective given the times and given restrictions. Like a drive-in movie, you drove into the venue, but unlike that format, you were issued a sizeable pod. The pod allowed you the room to stretch out with lawn chairs on the large space where the Portage Ex Fair is usually held.

Like Friday night, each of the four acts took turns gushing that they had a public space and more importantly, a public to perform to.

The Whoop & Hollar Folk Fest is always a collection of interesting people, music and happenings.
