Perdue Farms Named Presenting Sponsor of 2023 Maryland Folk Festival


It’s official: the Maryland Folk Festival, a free, large scale, 3-day celebration of the arts, has announced the Presenting Sponsor for the 2023 event — Perdue Farms. The festival will take place here September 22-24, 2023 and will feature hundreds of the nation’s finest musicians, dancers, and tradition bearers.

The Maryland Folk Festival is dedicated to creating unique experiences of discovery and learning, cultivating cultural and ethnic diversity, and pursuing all opportunities to inspire and enlighten through music, dance, food, crafts, and the traditional arts. Unlike other music festivals that rely on the sale of admission tickets, with the generous support of sponsors, donors, and grants, the Maryland Folk Festival provides a jubilant array of experiences for all ages at no cost to its audience. This makes it one of the few festivals in America that offer its attendees free access to such extensive programming.

“At Perdue Farms, we are excited to lend our support to the inaugural Maryland Folk Festival in our hometown this September,” said Randy Day, CEO of Perdue Farms. “We’re proud to join the City of Salisbury in a wonder local and regional event that celebrates diversity of artistic expression and cultures and will help boost civic pride.”

By becoming the Presenting Sponsor of this event, Perdue Farms is signaling their dedication to preserving artistic traditions and diverse cultures by providing a platform for artists to share their work with thousands of attendees across multiple days.

“We are incredibly thankful to have Perdue Farms as the presenting sponsor of this year’s Maryland Folk Festival, hosted right here in Salisbury,” said, incoming Mayor John “Jack” R. Heath. “This three-day event is a celebration of our nation’s rich cultural heritage. Thanks to the generous support of Perdue Farms, Downtown Salisbury will have the great privilege of welcoming talented musicians, dancers, and other performers from Maryland and beyond. Thank you to Perdue Farms for their significant contribution to a fantastic event that cannot be missed.”

Perdue Farms’ involvement with this year’s Maryland Folk Festival brings together two organizations dedicated to enriching community life. We look forward to seeing what this partnership brings as we come together once again for another celebration of music, art and culture on September 22-24, 2023 in Salisbury, MD!
