History and Purpose


The Down East FolkArts Society was formed in 1993. In 1996, it received its status as a 501 c3 Non Profit Membership Organization. Our purpose is to provide programs that foster and promote the enjoyment of traditional, multi-cultural, and contemporary folk music, dance and storytelling in Carteret and Craven Counties. The Society believes that through sharing these traditions, we encourage appreciation for all cultures and enrich the quality of life in our communities.
