Eugene Folklore Society

Our primary purpose is to further the understanding, appreciation, and performance of traditional folk arts by providing folk art opportunities within the Eugene community.

The Eugene Folklore Society is a 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit organization. Our purpose is to promote a variety of folk dancing, folk music and folk traditions and make these available for community participation. We are the 'folk gateway' for people coming newly to our area and for long-term residents just discovering traditional music and dance.

The Eugene Folklore Society values equality and mutual respect. We appreciate the diversity of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, range of abilities, sexual orientation, gender identity. and gender expression. We actively cultivate a climate of purposeful inclusion of all.

It's about the community of music and dance in the folk traditions.  Come join us!
