Folk Festival changes noted

The Natchitoches-Northwestern State University Folk Festival, a perennially popular event held each July at NSU since 1979, will not take place in its traditional format, according to Dr. Shane Rasmussen, director of the Louisiana Folklife Center.

“The Louisiana Folklife Center has been monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic very closely and has postponed making a decision about the 2020 festival in hopes that the situation would improve. However, it is with a great deal of sadness that unfortunately this year’s Natchitoches-NSU Folk Festival will not be able to be held in a face-to-face format,” Rasmussen said.
