Thanks to a partnership between the Downtown Newton Development Association and Hickory Museum of Art, the festival—formerly known as the Lake Norman Folk Art Festival—will make Newton, NC its new home.

Join us for the inaugural Foothills Folk Art Festival on Saturday, October 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Downtown Newton. This family friendly festival, which is expected to draw around 3,000 visitors, will showcase a variety of local and regional contemporary folk artists - whose work will be for sale - as well as artist demos, hands-on art activities for kids, two stages of live music, food from area restaurants and food truck vendors, beer gardens and more.
