Since the beginning, we have gathered at Birds Hill Park for the common love of people and music. Every summer we build a community that reflects the way we wish the world would be – a place where we can be unapologetically ourselves, full of inclusivity, kindness, and compassion.

As audience members, performers, volunteers, and staff, we all play an important role in the continued success of this community and the Winnipeg Folk Festival.

  • Music for everyone! We have a little something for everyone with a range of roots, indie rock, singer-songwriters, electronic, country, Celtic, Americana and genres from around the globe. Many of the 75+ artists in our lineup are playing in Manitoba for the very first time!
  • Folk music is passed down through families and communities. Although it has morphed and evolved through the generations the feeling is the same – it gives voice to the people who long for equality and justice through authentic and honest storytelling. We will continue to discover and evolve together.
  • We have nine stages throughout the Festival site. During the day, these stages are home to concerts, workshops and family programming. In the evenings, Main Stage is where our headlining bands play while Big Blue @ Night has more alternative music to groove to.
  • Daytime workshops are a huge part of the “discovery” aspect of Folk Fest, for Festivalgoers and artists alike. Workshops allow artists to jam with other artists they may have never had the opportunity to collaborate with and YOU get to discover new music as part of a one-time-only experience!
  • Award-winning Family Festivities. The Chickadee Big Top is home to live children’s music and fun Friday through Sunday. Located right beside it is the Family Area with games, crafts, reading, face-painting, puppetry and more. Families spend quality time together here throughout the weekend. But please note that this is not a drop-off area for kids to be looked after by volunteers.
