Street/Lot Closure Information for the National Folk Festival


SalisburyThe National Folk Festival is coming to Downtown Salisbury, Maryland on September 6-8, 2019, with music, dance, crafts, food and more – and its FREE to attend!  In advance of the Festival, multiple street and lot closures will be necessary in Downtown Salisbury. The City of Salisbury would like to make the public aware of the street closures that will be coming in a few weeks along with the much anticipated National Folk Festival. Most streets close the morning of Friday 9/6 and any cars left within the scope of the festival will need to be moved by 6AM, as barriers will be put in place at that time. Mill St. at Rt. 50 and the intersection of Riverside, Carroll and Mill will close Friday, 9/6 at 6AM.

The closures taking place before Friday 9/6 are as follows:

  1. Division St. from Main St. to Rt. 50 will be closed at 6AM on 9/3 and reopen 9/9 at noon

Market St. from Camden St. to Circle Ave. will be closed at 6AM on 9/4 and reopen 9/9 at 1AM
