2019 Destination Lowell

The 2019 Lowell Folk Festival is fast approaching! Help us showcase all that Lowell and you have to offer by signing up for Destination Lowell along Merrimack Street on Saturday, July 27 & Sunday, July 28. This year we want visitors to experience a more engaging, interactive place—a place to sit, a place to play, music to hear, culture to experience, and people to meet. We hope that festival visitors will soon discover why There's a Lot to Like about Lowell!


This year in the spirit of inclusivity we are looking to showcase organizations with themes that give a real representation of what Lowell has to offer! Those themes are:

The Arts



Events & Happenings

Outdoor Fun & Sports


The Spaces

If you are interested in participating, we are offering a space downtown and a tent.

Please keep in mind that each organization is responsible for providing their own informational displays and materials. We encourage you to be as creative as possible and make the tent look festive and inviting with brightly colored displays — have fun!
