Calgary Folk Music Festival

The Calgary Folk Music Festival was founded in 1980 and is produced by the not-for-profit Folk Festival Society of Calgary. Held at Calgary's bucolic Prince’s Island Park since its inception, it’s one of Canada’s flagship, trailblazing music festivals with a national and international profile and a broad, cutting-edge programming vision.
The annual Festival is a four-day family-friendly cultural and musical extravaganza. Some 70 artists from Alberta, Canada and the world perform on six daytime and two evening stages in concerts and sessions – unpredictable mash-ups where artists collaborate in unique and unexpected ways, sharing songs and stories. It’s a genre-bending affair that cleverly unites roots, world and indie icons and upstarts from around the globe; a destination event and essential community gathering for 53,000 Calgarians and tourists.

The site boasts a family area with interactive activities and live entertainment, a Talk Tent featuring comedians and spoken word artists plus other site animations, an artisan market, global culinary delights, a record tent and tree-shaded beer garden within earshot of two stages. Our multi award-winning environment program includes recycling, composting, wind-powered energy and bicycle parking.
