 The Jewish Folk Arts Festival is a celebration of the talent and diversity of Jewish performing and visual arts in the Greater Washington DC/Baltimore region. The richness of our values, culture and heritage is passed from generation to generation through our singers, writers, dancers, visual artists, storytellers and craftspeople. All performers and workshop presenters donate their time to the festival.

The Jewish Folk Arts Festival offers a rare meeting place for all Jews in our community, young and old, secular and religious to celebrate our Jewish heritage together.
