Vancouver Folk Music Festival

Every July, you’ll find Vancouverites heading down to Jericho Beach for the Vancouver Folk Musical Festival, a major event on the world folk and roots music circuit, and one that might just change your mind about what constitutes “folk music.” Both local talents and big-name international performers (think Joan Baez, Angelique Kidjo and Loudon Wainwright III) take to the eight outdoor stages for three days of soulful performance.

Along with the stages, the festival also features a large street food selection, a crafts market, and the Festival Community Village where you can learn about local community-building organizations and businesses. The festival attracts a diverse crowd, including families who head straight for the Little Folks Village, an area for craft-making, song-singing, face-painting and story-telling.

Dates: July 14 -16, 2017
