The Peterborough Folk Festival happens this year on August 17, 18 and 19, 2018.
It is a three-day music and art festival in the heart of the beautiful city of Peterborough, Ontario. With an abundance of music, workshops, food and craft vendors, we are certain that you will love our festival as much as we do!
The Peterborough Folk Festival’s mandate is to foster the artistic and professional development of local culture. In doing this, we encourage local artists to apply to Emerging Artist Program and to apply as performers.
The main festival on Saturday and Sunday is FREE but donations are greatly appreciated and encouraged. The Peterborough Folk Festival is a volunteer-run non-profit registered charity organization and we rely on the generosity of our main sponsors and private donors (like you!) so we can continue to put on a great weekend of music and arts.
