Steve Cates appreciates the tremendous audience turnout and the support of volunteers. After the Wednesday evening performance at Cannonsburgh, he released comments to the public through an e-mail:

We've had two excellent performances thus far during Folkfest - last night and tonight! Even one of my severest critics (a former dancer) was highly complimentary. It's nice to see you promenade out, to top-notch music, with good smiles, fine stepping and costumes fresh and colorful!! Tomorrow night should be the same!

We have been asked to participate in a group picture Thursday night just before the show starts at 6. We'll need flags, costumes, sign, etc. - along with all other participating groups.

Invite all you know to be with us Thur. night at the Bell Buckle Banquet Hall. We'll begin at 6, with dinner provided afterward to the participants! Admission is FREE.

Our last get-together of all of our Folkfest participants is at 10:00 on Sat. morning at Saint Paul's Episcopal Church on E. Main. It will be a good time to socialize, have a good brunch and bid farewell to our 2019 Folkfest participants.
