Media Accreditation for the Folklorama Festival
For access to cover Folklorama during the Festival, we ask you to apply for media accreditation. Accreditation provides a variety of benefits including access to cultural displays, entertainment, press materials, and interview opportunities.
Submission Dates: June 1 – July 15, 2021 – online link for application will be open on June 1, 2021.
Once your application has been received, you will be notified about the status of your application via email once it has been processed. Accreditation will be available for pick-up in late June. You will be notified directly via email of the specific date and location of media accreditation pick-up.
Please note: Once you have received your pass, go online to reserve your times and Pavilions. You will then be e-mailed a ticket. All tickets are first-come, first serve. A ticket is required for each admission. Entry is permitted through the VIP/Group Tour entrance and does not secure food, beverage, or seating.
