This year’s Virginia Folklife Area at the Richmond Folk Festival will feature two very special programs. On the Richmond Times Dispatch Virginia Folklife Stage, we will celebrate Virginia’s winners of the National Heritage Fellowship, the highest honor the US government can bestow upon a traditional artist. And in the Folklife Traditional Crafts area, the Virginia Folklife Program will present “Fertile Ground: Virginia’s Agricultural Traditions.”
