We loved how unique this park was. The artisans were friendly and helpful. The free music concerts were expecially fun! Try the ice cream while you listen to the music!

Enjoyed the tour and watching the craftsman do their skills. We made candles and bought jewelry. Each vendor was friendly and informative. It was great day. This is worth the visit. From the music, the quilt makers and the knife maker.

You’ll need at least half a day to enjoy the Folk Center, full day to listen to the many vendors. Everyone was friendly. Loved all of it! The Shannon cabin and garden was like stepping back in time. You’ll need good walking shoes.
