North Carolina Arts Marketplace

The NC Arts Marketplace at the National Folk Festival, sponsored this year by Our State Magazine, features the juried, handmade creations of the finest artists and craftspeople from the North Carolina region.  It will include both deeply traditional crafts and more contemporary artistic expressions rooted in the region’s experience.

55 Artists & Craftspeople have been selected for the NC Arts Marketplace at the 2017 National Folk Festival Festival! Last year was a huge success for our vendors and community.  We anticipate that with good weather the 2017 National Folk Festival (Festival) will attract over 160K individuals to Downtown Greensboro this year to enjoy first class music, traditional art, crafts, and food.

The Marketplace will operate during normal Festival hours. Visit artist’s websites in the list below!
