Important Announcement:

The Lake Norman Folk Art Festival presented by the Hickory Museum of Art will not be held in 2015. Click here for full announcement. [Artists who pre-registered will receive a refund check in early February]

We would like to thank everyone who helped make the Festival a success over the past 6 years! Thank you to the folk artists, our tremendous volunteer crew, planning committee, Kerin & Wayne Saunders, sponsors, musicians, and everyone who joined us on the lake to celebrate this wonderful art form.

The Hickory Museum of Art's third floor is dedicated to Southern contemporary folk art. We invite you to check out "Discover Folk Art." Admission is free and there is something for all ages! Stay tuned for future folk art events and exhibitions.
