Vancouver Folk Music Festival

For nearly thirty years, one of Vancouver's favourite events drawing old and young alike is the annual Folk Music Festival; with a host of performers spread across seven stages, set in the heart of the Jericho Beach Park. Day, evening and weekend tickets are available at varying prices, with 'early bird' tickets on sale from April. Food stalls, a bustling market and a fantastic atmosphere add up to a wonderful weekend's entertainment, and for those who can't afford a ticket, the beach and the park on the perimeters of the fenced concert area are perfect places to still catch some of the music, picnic, or browse the many stalls lining the beach, selling anything from corn on the cob to First Nations crafts, tie-dyed t-shirts and jewellery.

Venue: Jericho Beach Park
