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 40th 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 fifth 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.
The 2017 lineup includes Billy Bragg and Joe Henry, Shawn Colvin, Kathleen Edwards, Rhiannon Giddens from the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Barenaked Ladies, women's music icon Ferron and Her All Star Band, Scottish traditionalists, RURA, Chouk Bwa Libète from Haiti – and so many more!
Thursday evening concert is free and in celebration of Canada 150! In order to attend please register on the festival website.
