The first Moab Folk Festival took place November 2003. The Moab Folk Camp was added to the Festival in 2008.

The Moab Folk Festival and Moab Folk Camp are produced by the Friends of the Moab Folk Festival (Friends) a 501c3 non-profit corporation that came into existence in March of 2005.

Our mission is to promote community building through music appreciation, education, and environmental stewardship. Based in the small, rural community of Moab, Utah, Friends strives to bring diverse Folk Music talents and educational opportunities from around the country to the area for the entertainment and enjoyment of the local community and visitors. We encourage environmental stewardship by engaging in and advocating for sustainable and low-impact practices in all of our activities. We strive to keep our programs and concerts economically accessible to many and offer several free to the public.
