Description

It’s approaching 11 p.m. on Saturday, and the focus of Folk Fest is quickly shifting to Franklin Street.

Performances and dances have been taking place at Centennial Hall and at the Juneau Arts and Cultural Center (the JACC) all week, but late-night Saturday is about music at downtown bars and even in the hallways of the Alaskan Hotel. The music begins around 10 p.m. and goes until long after the bars close.

Three bars in particular — The Alaskan, The Red Dog Saloon and The Rendezvous — serve as the main destinations on this night.
