If you tried to call The Folk School any time since Thursday morning, 9/3/2020, the phone just rang and rang. That’s because the power is out at Pioneer Park, and will be well into next week. We’re really sorry for the inconvenience, but in the meantime please email us at info@folk.school instead of calling. 

The News-Miner has an article about it in today’s paper: Electrical problem shortens Pioneer Park’s concessionaire season. The article is behind a paywall, but here’s the crux: “Underground electrical lines in the parking lot between the Frontage Road and the Salmon Bake appear to be the source of the problem… The borough is hiring a contractor to evaluate and make repairs….” And the work won’t be done until well into the week, if not after.

Please note that The Folk School is not a seasonal concessionaire as mentioned in the article. We’re open and operating in the park year-round.
