Take the Train

Amtrak—in partnership with the North Carolina Department of Transportation Rail Division—is the official Transportation Partner & Sponsor for the National Folk Festival.

Festival-goers may hop on a train in Boston, New York, Washington, Raleigh, or Charlotte—or anywhere in-between—and get off in downtown Greensboro, right in the middle of the Festival.


Fly Easy! Fly to PTI Airport

Located just 12 miles from downtown Greensboro—and the heart of the National Folk Festival— Piedmont Triad International Airport is served by major airlines including US Air, American/ American Eagle, Delta, United, Frontier, and Allegiant. The third-largest airport in North Carolina, PTI offers easy check-in, easy baggage claim, easy screening, and easy parking.
