“The idea is to get people out and enjoying live music during the cold winter months,” said Goodwyn. “It gives them something to do when a lot of things are kind of shut down or slowed due to the cold.”

This event has run for a few years now and it’s a great opportunity for folks to break out of their winter hibernation to enjoy some great music.

“Live music is just another facet of a healthy thriving community,” she said. “At a time like this, when there’s a global pandemic, and so many things are changing in the world, it really means a lot to build connections with people. Live music in particular is one way many people do that.”

The weekend before Winterruption begins, a skating party will kick off the event on January 22, 2022. It’s free and will be held at City Square in Victoria Park.

“It’s something we’ve done in the past. It’s lots of fun,” said Goodwyn. “People can borrow skates for free and enjoy great music with some hot chocolate. It’s a great way to start celebrating and get the family out.”

Goodwyn adds that they aim to make their events as low risk as possible. They are encouraging people to get vaccinated and will be adhering to COVID-19 protocols. Winterruption runs January 26-29, 2022. Tickets go on sale on Monday, November 15, 2021. Visit the Regina Folk Festival website for more details.
