Downeast Friends of the Folk Arts (DEFFA) is a non-profit membership organization whose goal is to nurture and promote the living traditions of folk music and dance in Maine. We publish a monthly newsletter with news, calendar listings, information, and other items of interest to the Maine folk art, music, and dance community. DEFFA also hosts the annual Down East Country Dance Festival in March of each year, a weekend long celebration of traditional and international music, dancing, and fun!
