The festival is located in the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center and the Whaling National Historical Park in New Bedford, Massachusetts. It was selected as a Yankee Magazine "Editor's Choice" for 2014. The New Bedford Folk Festival has seven stages in and around the National Park that range from the 1200 seat Zeiterion Performing Arts Center to the intimacy of the "Meet the Performer" area. The festival also features a high quality crafts show with over ninety juried, handmade crafts for sale at affordable prices. Food will also be available including the justifiably world famous New Bedford landed fish and scallops. The New Bedford Folk Festival is supported in part by grants from the Cultural Councils of New Bedford, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, Marion and Dartmouth, local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
