The event, now in its 22nd year, begins on Friday and thousands are expected to attend.
Throughout the weekend multi-award winning acts from the USA and Europe will perform in the festival marquee and on six stages dotted across the park.
All the stages are set against the unique backdrop of the museum's exhibit buildings. This year's festival will feature US artists including the Lonesome River Band and Cedar Hill.
Organisers say the event allows a chance for fans to get in touch with the American folk-style whose roots are firmly in the traditional music of Britain and Ireland.
Music fans can wander among historic American and Irish buildings whilst listening to the music that evolved from the tunes settlers took to the New World.
"It's all about trying take people to that migration theme, to that folk park theme and really just using the performing arts and song and dance to explain to people the movement of people from the nine counties of Ulster in the 18th and 19th century," Richard Hurst, from the Ulster American Folk Park explained.
Sammy Shelor, from the Lonesome River Band, explained why the music is so popular both in the States and further afield.
"The Irish influence on what we do, that came over from here to the United States, is tremendous," he said.
"I know a lot of great Irish musicians and the similarities are really just wonderful and we love playing this kind of music."
Brandon Rickman, also in the band, added: "We've been to a lot of places and everybody seems to like it. You can't listen to a banjo without smiling, right? The instrument of love."
