Here at the Four Rivers Cultural Center, we believe that when we honor our traditions we create a more vibrant community together. That’s why we are happy to announce that Tradition Keepers Folklife Festival will be returning this year on November 6th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

Over the past few months, we have been releasing traditions virtually through our Facebook page, giving you and your family access to the incredible range of traditional arts and culture living right here in the Four Rivers Region. 

This Fall we will be bringing our virtual festival to a theater near you

Join us in the Meyer McLean Theater for a presentation of some of our favorite Tradition Keepers.
