Maryland Traditions is a program of the Maryland State Arts Council. Its mission is to discover, share and sustain our living traditions. Maryland Traditions receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts Folk Arts Infrastructure Initiative.
The Maryland State Arts Council presents: Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival: 2013, featuring music, food, crafts and living traditions from across the state!
Maryland's cultural traditions take many forms, from deeply rooted local forms that reflect Maryland's long history to the skills and artistry of more recent migrants to our State. These traditions help to give Maryland its unique and distinctive identity as a place. Traditional arts and community culture often exist outside of formal institutional settings but represent a great storehouse of knowledge and value. Maryland Traditions seeks to draw attention to this resource for residents and visitors and support its practitioners to sustain and transmit their knowledge to the next generation.
FREE PARKING is available to all festivalgoers, with a free shuttle ride to the Festival:
