A major event on the world folk and roots music circuit, the Vancouver Folk Music Festival challenges audiences to expand their understanding and appreciation of what ‘folk’ can mean in a global context. Bringing attention to exciting young artists who are pushing the boundaries and honouring the elders of the tradition, the Festival is an acknowledged leader in creating new ways of working with artists in developing forums and vehicles for experimentation, improvisation and education.The Festival features more than 70 hours of music on eight outdoor stages –three evenings of mainstage concerts and two full days of performances throughout the park.

The Festival also features a twenty-vendor food area, a crafts market, a stage and activity area dedicated to the Little Folks and their families, and the Festival Community Village where local community-building organizations and businesses are represented.
