Abstract/ Summary

The city of Bangor will be the next stop for the National Folk Festival! Sandy Ives and Pauleena MacDougall are serving on the local planning committee for the festival, and Pauleena will also chair the Material Culture committee and aid the Festival's Executive Director, Bob Libby. The National Folk Festival was brought to Bangor through the hard work of Donna Fitchner, Executive Director of the Bangor Convention & Visitors Bureau, in coordination with the city of Bangor and Eastern Maine Development Corporation. Senator Susan Collins and humorist Tim Sample will serve as Honorary Co-chairs for the event.

The city hopes to continue the festival well beyond the initial three years. The National's three-year tenure is intended to lay the groundwork for the continuation of a locally-produced, high quality traditional arts festival after the National moves on to another city. The date of the 2002 festival is August 23-25, and it will be held along the Penobscot River waterfront.
