Originating from the local tradition of community sings, this festival promoted local folk and country traditions to help raise funds for local groups. One of the largest in the event's history took place on March 19, 1908. Sponsored by Ola Forbes at the Greenville Opera House, this event featured many local talents and several prominent folk songs. Not associated with the fiddlers' convention was another event that reflected Pitt County's folk heritage. On June 5, 1954, Greenville hosted at Wright Auditorium the Annual Statewide Folk Festival, which highlighted folk artists from throughout the State along with Pitt County's folk artists.
