[ARCHIVED] MSU Museum, City Issue Joint Statement Regarding Great Lakes Folk Festival

EAST LANSING, Mich. — The MSU Museum and City of East Lansing are issuing the following joint statement in response to media inquiries regarding the one-year hiatus of the Great Lakes Folk Festival:

"The MSU Museum has determined that the Great Lakes Folk Festival should be placed on a one-year hiatus during 2018. The City of East Lansing recognizes and understands that taking a pause to consider the long-term future direction of the festival, combined with the extensive construction in the downtown area, affords both the MSU Museum and the City an opportunity to continue to work together in a productive process in the months ahead. We look forward to a joint effort between the MSU Museum and the City of East Lansing in facilitating community conversations regarding a new version of this highly visible and popular festival."

The Great Lakes Folk Festival is an MSU Museum event previously hosted on an annual basis in downtown East Lansing.
