133 Days Until the 34th Annual Brimstone Head Folk Festival

The 34th annual Brimstone Head Folk Festival is quickly approaching. As March comes to a close we are hard at work organizing performers and volunteers to make our festival run as smoothly as possible. The dates of this year’s festival are the 11th, 12th, and 13th of August.

Any vendors interested in selling anything on festival grounds please contact the Folk Alliance for more information. As well, anyone interested in volunteering or helping us with this year’s festival please contact us. Our festival cannot go ahead without the help of many volunteers on the gate and on traffic.

Don’t forget to like our facebook page Brimstone Head Folk Festival Official

We hope to see you all at Brimstone Head Park in 133 days. Cheers!

Fogo Island Folk Alliance launches new website

We are pleased to launch our new website, www.brimstoneheadfestival.com. The site was developed as a platform to inform Fogo residents and visitors of any plans for the upcoming festival. The website features a Discover Fogo section which will help visitors plan their trip to Fogo. The What’s New? page (where you are right now) will be used to communicate any news releases, updates, calls for volunteers, etc that the Fogo Island Folk Alliance has during the Brimstone Head Festival planning stage.
Further information about the Fogo Island Folk Alliance and a contact form can be found in the footer of every page on this website. We invite you also to join our Facebook group.

So, come and join us as we celebrate 34 years of music, dance and Fogo traditions on August 11th, 12th and 13th at the base of Brimstone Head. It’s sure to be fun for the whole family.

Cheers,
