INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The annual Folk Festival kicked off Sunday in the historic Irvington neighborhood.
In 2012, the festival’s purpose was to celebrate the 100th birthday of folk legend Woody Guthrie. It was so popular that organizers wanted to keep the tradition going.
“It’s really caught on. This is the third year and it’s looking like it’s going to be the best one,” one of the festival’s organizers said.
Throughout the week, people can enjoy guitar classes, live music, and children’s concerts.
The festival is sponsored by the Irvington Historical Society and it’s free to the public.
Folk Festival runs until next Saturday.
