None of the acts performing on the opening day of the 2020 Whoop & Hollar Folk Fest failed to mention the magic of again being able to perform live, some pinched themselves twice to make sure it was real.

Many festival-goers also pinched themselves to make sure they were in fact under the sun and stars being able to enjoy live music, something under COVID-19 health restrictions was all but banned.

The 2020 Whoop & Hollar Folk Fest continues today at 6:30 on the Portage Exhibition grounds on Island Park.

Saturday, August 29th — 6:30 pm to 11:00 pm
