Tastes & Treasures II at Folk and Heritage Festival at Sahuaro Ranch March 2-3

The annual Glendale Folk and Heritage Festival will be a celebration of folk music, its history and culture, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 2-3. Drawing from a rich heritage of ranching, railroading and mining, the Folk and Heritage Festival allows attendees to experience the unique diversity of the Southwest. We will have a booth featuring our cookbooks and merchandise.
The festival takes place at the city’s Historic Sahuaro Ranch, 9802 N. 59th Ave., and at Glendale Main Public Library, 5959 W. Brown St. The free event features folk and bluegrass music performed by more than 400 musicians, live cowboy poetry and authentic storytelling, with five stages of music throughout Saturday and Sunday.
Marshall Trimble, Arizona’s Official State Historian, will open the festival Saturday morning, and he, along with other Culture Keepers named during Arizona’s Centennial, will present workshops with story and song that celebrate our state and its history during the festival. The Arizona Culture Keepers, including Trimble, will appear individually and in song circles and workshops.
