Edmonton Folk Music Festival
August 8 - August 11
A dizzying four days of music, great food and a stellar setting during the Edmonton Folk Music Festival have become a summer institution in the city.
The festival is kid-friendly – eleven and under get in free – and it’s also a community event with over 2,500 volunteers hell-bent on bringing the world’s best folk music to Northern Alberta with a good dose of fun. An army of food vendors cooks up a vast array of international delicacies, and there’s a lively beer garden as well with a selection of brews to quench your thirst and soothe your throat after all that spirited singing along.
