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.
All of this takes place in the spectacular outdoor setting of Jericho Beach Park, amidst groves of pine and cedar trees and against a backdrop of the beautiful coast mountains rising above a modern city skyline.
Meanwhile, the appearance of many Festival guest artists at other venues around town in the days before and after the Festival Weekend create a unique city-wide folk and roots celebration, creating opportunities to get up close and personal with Festival guest artists.
The Vancouver Folk Music Festival is a world of music on the beach for one magic weekend every summer. We'll see you in the Park!
