Columbus Folk Music Society


The Columbus Folk Music Society is a not-for-profit 501c(3) organization that exists for cultural, educational and charitable purposes. 

In addition to being a cultural cornerstone in the local community and facilitating performances of the folk arts for all to enjoy, part of our mission includes the broadening of folk art knowledge, understanding and appreciation. To this end, we offer educational experiences in different forms (including workshops we run every year at our Central Ohio Folk Festival).
