The festival continues Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature nearly 50 performances, more than 100 performers, plus nine different musical workshops led by some of the performers in between sets on the stages and jamming on the museum grounds.

Admission to the festival is $10 for adults, $8 for museum members, and free for youth, 17 and younger. The Folk Music Festival is on the grounds of Sharlot Hall Museum, two blocks west of the courthouse plaza in downtown Prescott, 415 W. Gurley St.
