BANGOR - An event raising money for the American Folk ​Festival is coming to an end.

Color Bangor has been the single largest fund raiser for the 3 day folk festival on the Bangor waterfront, outside of the festival itself.

It will be run for the final time when the event takes place on Saturday May 11th.

Kerri Tripp from the Greater Bangor Convention and Visitors Bureau says they're hoping for a great turnout .

According to Tripp "The festival board has decided to try a different style of creative event to happen within the community, and these are just some of the things we just do to keep the American Folk ​Festival up in peoples minds at different points of the year".

Individuals or teams can register for the final Color Bangor by visiting americanfolkfestival.com and selecting the Color Bangor tab.
