In light of the Covid-19 news, the Three Rivers Folklife Society's Board of Directors has decided it is in the best interest of our members to cancel all our remaining events scheduled for April and May 2020. We hope to reschedule some of these for later. Stay tuned for the status of our Tumbleweed Music Festival, scheduled for Labor Day weekend.
