Calgary Folk Music Festival – Calgary Folk Fest 2019

July 25 @ 11:00 am - July 28 @ 9:00 pm

Calgary Folk Festival 2019 - 40th Anniversary

Calgary Folk Music Festival is an annual three-day showcase presenting a far-reaching spectrum of music genres, such as free jazz, post-punk, world music, experimental hip-hop, and improvised music, during the dates of July 25-28, 2019 at Prince’s Island Calgary.

With +65 artists in 8 stages, let the music take you to another place at the 40th Annual Calgary Folk Music Festival. Surreal perfection: a town where independent songwriters, roots and country veterans and blues masters rub elbows with the divas of global electronics, Latin rhythm masters, Ukrainian rock bands and Congolese hipsters.

Where collaborations on the fly create unique magic in life. All in the green urban environment of Prince’s Island that bases a community for a relaxed, affectionate and ecologically day. We have great wind power and a hot main stage, an interactive family area, an international craft market, world culinary delights, a record store and an outdoor beer garden.

We'll be at @marketcollective all weekend with our new candles to buy (or to sniff!) and a chance to win tickets to the Festival. Come say hi!

Our annual holiday sale is still on until Dec 8! Give the gift of Festival magic and get your 2020 passes for the lowest price we offer.
