Folk & Heritage Festival back to take over Glendale

Sahuaro Ranch, library host 2-day event next month

The annual Glendale Folk and Heritage Festival -- a celebration of folk music, its history and culture -- takes place 10 a.m.-5 p.m. both days, Saturday, Feb. 29 and Sunday, March 1 at Sahuaro Ranch Park, 9802 N. 59th Ave.

The event takes place every spring to foster an understanding and appreciation of traditional Arizona music and culture through experiential learning, performances and workshops. Drawing from a rich heritage of ranching, railroading and mining, the Folk and Heritage Festival allows attendees to experience the unique diversity of the Southwest.

The festival calls Historic Sahuaro Ranch and Glendale Main Public Library, 5959 W. Brown St., home.

The free event features folk and bluegrass music performed by more than 400 musicians, live cowboy poetry and authentic storytelling, with five stages of music throughout both Saturday and Sunday. In addition, three workshop areas will invite attendees to learn to play spoons, saws, ukuleles, harmonicas, swing guitar, pennywhistle, jug band, skiffle music, autoharps and more.
