The Plymouth Folk and Blues Festival is an annual, two-day series of concerts held each year on Labor Day weekend. The event is free to attend and held in the open air on the grounds of the President Calvin Coolidge Historic Site.
2018 marks the 14th year for the festival and, once again, the lineup includes a selection of both regional and national performers.
This year will see Julia Mark, Seth Adam, Cricket Blue, Alice Howe, and Dan Weber. Jay Ottaway and the Ramble return this year both as performers at the festival and as hosts of the Saturday Night Jam Session in Bridgewater, VT.

The Plymouth Folk and Blues Festival is a free event but donations are much appreciated. Non-perishable food items for the Vermont Food Bank are particularly appreciated.
The festival is a rain or shine affair, with Plymouth Notch’s historic 1840 Union Christian Church serving as the rain venue. The Plymouth Folk and Blues Festival also offers distractions for the kiddies in the form of hay rides, crafts, and face painting.
Arrive early and explore Plymouth Notch and the Calvin Coolidge Historic Site, birthplace and boyhood home of our 30th President, Calvin Coolidge. Calvin Coolidge’s family home and much of Plymouth Notch remain virtually unchanged since the early 20th century. Plymouth Notch is a National Historic Landmark and an excellent destination for a day-trip.
