The National Folk Festival, to be held in Butte, MT from July 10-12, 2009, has been awarded one of American Bus Association’s (ABA) Top 100 Events in North America for 2009 by an elite tourism industry selection committee. The list, which celebrates its 27th birthday this year, is published as a supplement to the September/October issue of Destinations magazine.


“The real news here is that the National Folk Festival has been recognized as a potential magnet for tourism dollars, at a time when reenergizing domestic tourism is so important to our spirit and our economy,” said Peter J. Pantuso, ABA’s president and CEO.
