The Folkmoot “Summer Fundraising Soirée” will take place from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, July 11, at the Folkmoot Friendship Center in Waynesville. 

At the Summer Soirée, you will have the chance to indulge in a variety of culturally inspired cuisines from different parts of the world. From savory dishes to sweet treats, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

To top it off, everyone will receive a drink ticket to complement your culinary adventure. As you savor your food, you can tap your feet to live music from local artists and immerse yourself in five culturally inspired rooms.

Patrons will also have the opportunity to participate in a second online auction with unique one-of-a-kind items and experiences up for bid.

Proceeds from this event will help support the future of Folkmoot and its mission to celebrate many cultures and champion arts, education, creative entrepreneurship and tradition.

Tickets are $50 per person. For more information and/or to purchase tickets, go to folkmoot.org.
