The MSU Museum's Great Lakes Folk Festival is set for Aug. 9-11 in downtown East Lansing.

The award-winning festival, produced by the MSU Museum's Michigan Traditional Arts Program, is a celebration of culture, tradition and community.

GLFF offers a one-of-a-kind mix of music and dance stages, demonstrations of traditional arts and storytelling, authentic ethnic food, an arts marketplace and many special activities for everyone.

The event will feature a variety of programs including “Campus and Community” and “Best of the Midwest.”
