Each summer since 1984 musicians and dancers from across the globe have visited the North Carolina mountain town of Waynesville as part of the Folkmoot International Dance and Music Festival. More than 8,000 international performers from 200 countries have participated through the decades.
Now located in the historic Hazelwood School in Waynesville, North Carolina, Folkmoot has transitioned to a year-round cultural center, with a focus not only on our summer festival, but also programs and events that celebrate diversity, encourage cultural inclusion, and honor worldwide cultural heritages, especially using dance and music as a tool to achieve world peace.
