Spirit of the Woods Music Association  

Yes! There will be a Folk Festival in Brethren on June 19!

Our motto this year: Keep it simple, keep it safe.
Think of it as a concert in the park with music from 1:00 to 6:00pm.

In order to increase safety for all of us, we are making changes to the way we have done this festival in the past. We reduced it from an all day event to an afternoon of music and we are expanding the listening space so that people will be able to be safely distant. Over the 43 years that we have sponsored this festival and other concerts, our audience has been respectful and we expect kindness and consideration.

Other changes to reduce the risk: there will be no t-shirt sales or food booths, no program book to hand out.

The festival will be held in the Dickson Township Park in Brethren, Michigan on June 19, 1:00 to 6:00pm.

There is no admission charge but donations are needed. It is expected that COVID guidelines will be followed.

PLEASE NOTE: if the local conditions or state & CDC guidelines change, the festival may be cancelled.

The Spirit of the Woods Music Association is simply a group of folks who love traditional music and get together to do the necessary work to bring musicians and music lovers together. Since 1978 we have put on an annual music festival, the Spirit of the Woods Folk Festival, held at the Dickson Township Park in Brethren, Michigan, the third Saturday in June.

Spirit of the Woods also presents concerts, dances, open mics, and special events during the fall and winter months.
