  • Best park I know of to take the family young or old. You can watch all kinds of crafts from history being demonstrated and at different times during the year they offer classes for the crafts. Low price to enter and they have a different group play live music all day. Great place.
  • Always a wonderful place to visit. This was my first time at the Folk Center without being part of a group. I still love it! Good music and a great atmosphere are always there. Just do better than I did. Rent a room and stay the entire weekend!
  • Great food. Shopping for unique items. Very clean. Great prices. Buffet. Squirrels playing outside. It was great. Everyone had a great time. We will come back.👍
  • Went on a Wednesday best thing, not crowded at all we were able to come and go into all the little shops. Loved it, so much hard work and heart put into all these hand made crafts definitely bought more than few lovely things. They also had free live music, shops and entertainment for kids and restaurants. Everyone was super nice and friendly .
  • This is such a nice place to visit. They welcome you like an old friend.We took a cheese making class there and had a blast! The restaurant and the cabins were also delightful.
