Founded in 1997 by the Columbus Folk Music Society – the Central Ohio Folk Festival (COFF) seeks to promote the various forms of folk/acoustic/roots traditions including modern singer-songwriter forms AND to make folk arts accessible to the public.  We believe the promotion of the folk arts, especially music, storytelling and dance, is important to the preservation and advancement of our cultural heritage. We also aim to provide a low cost AND family friendly fun weekend for all ages!

Our festival is run & staffed entirely by volunteers. Visit: for more information, especially as the date draws closer.
