Philadelphia Folk Festival or How I Learned to Love the Mud

The Groundz

City Snob no more! Forgetting I haven’t camped for over 20 years, I lived the life of muddy hippie for three days while I volunteered at the 50th Anniversary of the Philadelphia Folk Festival at the Old Pool Farm in Schwenksville, Pa.

Expectations: The Unknown

Reality: Something Special

Each camp has a name or concept. We were next to the Cats Down Under. Other camps include Who-ville, Azzole Country, The Tuesdays, The Hooligans, Bob’s Country Bunker and F.L.I.D.S.
