2017 Tucson Folk Festival Performer Applications
Applications Accepted with NO FEE: October 1-31, 2016
Applications Accepted with $25 FEE: November 1 – December 4, 2016
Deadline For All Performer Applications: December 4, 2016
As promised, the applications for the 2017 Tucson Folk Festival Performer and Stefan George Songwriting Competition are now online and ready to go! These applications are going online EARLY this year to allow for earlier notification.
This next year, due to construction going on at the Old Pima County Courthouse and Courtyard, the Courtyard Stage WILL NOT be available to us for the 2017 festival. After scouring the grounds of El Presidio Park and the surrounding area, it has been decided no space would be suitable to serve as a full-service stage. At this moment for this year only, it’s appearing there will only be four stages; not five. We do expect to get a bit more use out of the Patio Stage location at the front of the Tucson Museum of Art, but will most likely, expect a net loss of about 20 performers, due to this change, which will make our upcoming festival a little more competitive than usual. That being said, we welcome your applications and look forward to showcasing all of the great talent out there! Good Luck to All!
