Riverside's 6th Annual Folk Fest

The Riverside Folk Fest is a family event that offers a restful summer picnic and live bands performing folk and other genres of music. Enjoy refreshments, children's activities, games and more.

Don't miss this afternoon at Cantigny from 1:00pm - 7:00pm on June 18th. All proceeds benefit a scholarship fund for boys and girls who wish to attend Riverside’s Imaginative Learning programs. Riverside is a 501(c)(3) organization, and all contributions are tax-deductible.

Rousing and raucous, Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays roots music from Celtic, Eastern European and Appalachian traditions with thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling songwriting, beckoning crowds into a barn-dance, rock concert experience. Nashville’s Music City Roots says Scythian is ‘what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling’, and the Washington Post says “Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.”
