Join Folkmoot in the Hazelwood neighborhood of Waynesville for Folkmoot After Dark on Thursday, July 25. The night begins at 7 p.m. with the festival friendship dinner held at the Folkmoot Center. There are few better ways to get to know folks than over a meal, especially if that meal is rich in its flavors, its history, its family traditions (and recipes), passed along generation after generation.

Folkmoot’s international guests are supporting a community friendship dinner featuring popular recipes from their home countries. Following dinner at 8:30 pm, friends and volunteers from the community will gather on Hazelwood Avenue at the Plott hound statue for a lantern procession leading to the Folkmoot Center. The procession will begin at 9 p.m. This lantern parade is sponsored by the Daydreamz Project.

Finally, at 10 p.m Folkmoot welcomes the community for a late-night Variety Show, featuring international guests alongside community members interpreting southern-American culture. Be prepared to laugh, sing-along and experience Folkmoot like you never have before. Tickets for the friendship dinner are $40 per person, $75 for couples, and includes admission to the 10 pm variety show. Tickets for just the variety show are $10.
