For over forty years, Vancouver Folk Music Festival has been one of the city’s most exciting annual events, hosting an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary folk, roots and world musicians from around the world, all from picturesque destination of Jericho Beach Park.

In addition to music, there will be artisan vendors, kids activities and food galore. Speaking of which…

The city’s top culinary minds will set up shop smack dab in the middle of the festival site. With international food options served up by some of the city’s best food trucks, Vancouver Folk Music Festival’s food programming is reason enough to attend this year’s festivities.

For those who haven’t attended (come on, this is the 42nd year), Vancouver Folk Music Festival is truly a music festival like no other. From the serene grounds to the eclectic mix of music from around the world, this is truly the low-key, high-vibe musical experience of the summer.
