Mickey makes National Folk Festival scene

Home » The Mickey Spirit » Mickey makes National Folk Festival scene

Mickey Truck Bodies will have a major presence at the 2016 National Folk Festival slated for September 9 – 11 in downtown Greensboro, NC. Co-produced by the National Council for the Traditional Arts (NCTA) and ArtsGreensboro, the National Folk Festival is celebrating the second year of its three-year residency in Greensboro. The FREE, three-day event is America’s longest-running festival of traditional arts. Over 100,000 people attended the festival in 2015, and organizers project the attendance to more than double this year.

As the official sponsor of the event’s volunteer tee shirt, the Mickey logo will be prominently printed on the back of every tee shirt worn by Festival workers. In addition, 12 Mickey units will be on the grounds throughout the 3 days, including 9 van bodies and 3 keg trailers with a total of 30 taps for dispensing cold draft beer. The Mickey logo, along with the Folk Festival logo, will be prominent on all the units.

All Festival volunteers will be wearing a t-shirt with the Mickey logo.

Mickey employees will be on hand during the festival to discuss the benefits and features of the Mickey bodies. They will be set up under a tent adjacent to one of the beer dispensing trailers in close proximity to one of the performance stages.

“This is one of most popular folk festivals in the country, and the NCTA and ArtsGreensboro teams have done an outstanding job with the Greensboro venue,” says Dean Sink, Mickey President. “I attended the Festival last year and was very impressed with the entertainment talent and the general spirit of the event and the crowd. We’re looking forward to our involvement with this year’s Festival.”

The National Folk Festival has been around for 76 years and is America’s longest running festival of traditional arts. The festival’s programmers — the National Council for the Traditional Arts — make it central to their mission to include a diverse range of traditional music representing the varieties of America’s cultural assets. One of the notable elements behind the logic of the lineup is that it spotlights artists and traditions from North Carolina.
