Festival Description

South Dakota Friends of Traditional Music organizes the Festival in Canton each year. The program includes music on two stages along with a workshop. Pets are welcome and coolers. But, organizers ask you to please remove your own trash and cigarette butts when you leave. No beer is sold on site, therefore feel free to bring beverages of your own choice — including alcohol. Bring your own chair, blanket, and umbrella for your comfort. Ticket price does not include entrance to the State Park.
