Every July, the Calgary Folk Music Festival comes to Prince’s Island Park, entertaining young and old alike, with a diverse blend of music. It combines a rich sense of community with the mutual enjoyment of music and other activities.  The Folk Fest is back for 2021, but in a different format and under a new name, Summer Serenades.

From July 22 – 28, 2021, Summer Serenades will be a step on the road to recovery for the arts. There will be one main stage and the audience will be seated on “home base tarps” that will ensure a two-metre distance between groups. The event will accommodate 15% of the festival’s normal capacity and masks will be required. The family area and the artisan market won’t be available in 2021.
