Participate / Friends of Folk Festival
Tuesday - Live at Performance Park
Planning in Progress
Friends of Folk celebrates Dick Orlean's legacy with music and community. This Festival is held in the style of Dick’s “Friends of Folk” nights. Both professionals & amateurs will “make a joyful noise” and sing those songs that remind us of our friend.
A scholarship fund has been established with Dick’s passions in mind. This award will be given out at the Festival. Anyone in the Estes Valley with a passion for music, photography or the arts can apply for the scholarship.
Dick’s photography will also be on sale at the Festival with proceeds helping support the new scholarship fund.
The Festival acts as a kick-off for the scholarship fund and future festivals in honor of Dick. Dick Orleans was always supporting others to pursue their arts, whether music or photography or anything! He inspired so many and we want to keep that energy going. Come to our party and Celebrate during Dick's birth week. We miss you Dick!
