*****COVID-19 UPDATE – this event will not be held in 2020*****
It’s Edmonton Folk Music Festival time! The grande dame of festival season is here and will take place from August 8-11, 2019. Discover new favourites and revel in headliners; the likes of Ani DiFRanco, Blue Rodeo, Bruce Cockburn, Hurray for the Riff Raff and many others. Take in the intimacy of the small stage shows and workshops during the day, and feel the love in the most beautiful venue at the main stage concerts in the evening!
Don’t forget to visit the bottom of the hill where the fantastic Kids’ Zone is set up! There are tons of kids activities including crafts and face painting. You may want to bring a change of clothes for if (when?) the splash park gets too tempting. Kids 11 and under get in free with their adult, and there’s a very family friendly re-entry policy, meaning even if kids can’t last the whole day, adults can come back later without hassle.
