Edmonton Folk Fest

One of the world's premier folk festivals, the Edmonton Folk Fest brings folk music to summer 2023!

Festival Dates: -
Location: Edmonton, Alberta

Beginning in 1980 with one staff member and 300 volunteers, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival has grown and matured into one of the leading folk festivals in the world. Now boasting a volunteer force of over 2,000, the festival is a not-for-profit society dedicated to bringing in the best of folk music from around the world.

The quality of the music and the depth of the performer lineup is the single greatest ingredient in the festival's success. Terry Wickham, the event's producer, selects artists within a broad musical mandate.
