The Vancouver Folk Music Festival is a Canadian cultural institution – a unique community-based celebration with an internationally-renowned reputation for presenting the finest traditional and contemporary folk and roots music artists from around the world. Now in its 39th year, it continues to be one of the city’s most beloved, enjoyed, and respected events – named “Best Local Music Festival” by Georgia Straight readers for the fourth year in a row, and 2016 “Best Music Festival” by readers of the Westender. The Festival draws 38,000+ enthusiastic attendees annually to beautiful Jericho Beach Park, folks eager to experience the music and culture of more than 60 international, national, and local acts. Every year, two and even three generations of families join friends and fellow community members to share in the music, dance, food, children’s activities – and the magical ambience of the festival.
Already known around the world for the quality of its programming, friendly ambiance and beautiful park setting, the 2016 Vancouver Folk Music Festival will be another year of exciting, eclectic and diverse music for all ages.
This festival is guaranteed to create another magic-filled weekend of great music at Jericho Beach. Add in fabulous food, great shopping, a special area for Little Folks plus other on-site activities and amenities.
