Event description
The Calgary Folk Music Festival's 40th anniversary! Join us in July 2019 at beautiful Prince's Island Park to celebrate Folk turning 40.

About this Event

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 beautiful 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. 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.
