The Folk Festival Society of Calgary will enhance the quality of life in our community through the celebration of music from diverse cultural traditions.
About Our Charity
The Calgary Folk Music Festival is a long weekend of family-friendly musical bliss at Prince's Island Park featuring 65+ artists from around the world on 7 stages.
It’s a genre-bending affair, including blues, Celtic, traditional music, roots, global grooves, cutting-edge sounds, dub, bluegrass, funk, country, hip-hop, R& B, old-timey, spoken word, alternative and more.
Come early, set up your tarp, blankets and chairs in front on mainstage each day for your evening viewing pleasure. During the day, wander to take in our ever-evolving programming on 6 stages in the park, which bring together musicians in unpredictable songwriter-in-the-round and thematic sessions; magical collaborations where one-time ensembles are created as artists trade songs and back each other up.
