46th Annual Shawano Folk Music Festival

The Shawano County Arts Council is a supporter of music and music education. 

Planning is underway for 2024!
Save the dates: August 9 -11, 2024

2022 was the year we “came back singing!” After a two-year hiatus, the festival returned to the Mielke Arts Center and Park for our 44th year. Despite a very rainy Saturday, we had a wonderful weekend with truly outstanding musicians. In 2023, with the theme “Music Under the Trees,” the festival took place the weekend of August 11 – 13, again at Mielke Park.  Our 45th year was a huge success, with beautiful weather, fantastic music, talented artists demonstrating and selling their creations, and record daytime crowds.  Bluegrass musician Art Stevenson was the 2023 Honorary Director. He passed the baton on to John Stano, Milwaukee singer/songwriter, who was selected as the 2024 Honorary Director. As such, John will be returning next year to be part of the 2024 line up. Once the festival committee has booked the other main performers, they will be posted on our website.

If you have never attended the Shawano Folk Music Festival, we highly encourage you to check out this outstanding music festival. Whether it’s just for a day enjoying the outdoor stages, taking in an evening concert inside the Mielke Arts Center or purchasing a weekend pass and taking in the entire weekend, we invite you to join in the joy of discovering the great musical talent of local, national and sometimes international performers in the beautiful wooded setting of Mielke Park in Shawano.

Thank you to the Shawano County Arts Council for all their support.
