Great Lakes Folk Festival

Saturday, August 12th, 2006

This weekend you can find me at the Great Lakes Folk Festival, downtown East Lansing, Michigan. I’m working for my dear friend Altu all day Friday, Saturday and Noon to 3pm on Sunday. Her food booth is in East Lansing parking lot #1.

On Sunday from 3-6 I’ll be one of the assigned booth watchers at the Guild booth (it’s not just our guild, but basketmakers and weavers and quilters and others I don’t know yet). This is behind the People’s church in the public parking lot there. My self portrait will be displayed in this tent for all day Saturday and Sunday, then it returns to Threadbear Fiberarts for a few days before I take it to Michigan Fiber Festival.

Latino ProjektIt is very hard to find parking, since most of the events are in parking lots and they have blocked off a lot of the streets. If you want to park in the Grove Street ramp, you have to go down Abbott from the North (Saginaw or Burcham). When you hit the barricade, turn left at the church and go one block to Park Street. If you turn right there, you will drive through the police parking lot but you can turn left past that and get into the ramp that way. You can’t get there on Grove street, go figure.

Or you can not turn on Park, go two more blocks to MAC and turn right. There is a security person who will let you in if you say you are parking in the hotel ramp.

Or if you feel like walking a bit, you can park for free on some streets in the neighborhood west of Abbott near the Hannah Community Center, or North of the hotel near Charles and Linden. On Sunday you should also be able to find parking at MSU near the Student Union.

Please come to the festival. Admission is free and we have world class acts from literally all over the world, four different stages going constantly, and excellent ethnic foods also influenced from all over the world. It’s supposed to be perfect weather this weekend and I encourage anyone local to get out and enjoy it.
