Calgary Folk Music Festival

Prince's Island Park Calgary, Alberta
Thursday, July 21, 2016 - 16:00 to Sunday, July 24, 2016 - 22:00

Revel in one of the “7 musical wonders of the world” at the 37th Calgary Folk Music Festival at Prince’s Island Park, an annual sound salvation that programs 76 icons and upstarts from 16 countries on 8 stages in concerts and magical collaborative sessions.

It’s a genre-defying, continent-linking festival where fiercely independent, creative troubadours and master instrumentalists from Mauritania, Korea, New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Ethiopia, the United States and Canada celebrate diverse traditions, deep roots and cool grooves.

Big Rock is a proud partner of this annual tradition in Calgary. Drop into the Big Rock beer gardens for a little shade and a cold one!

"Whether one of the thousands of families with babies in strollers and toddlers on piggyback, gangs of girlfriends stretched out on the lawn or elderly couples perched in the shade listening to Corb Lund and Annie Lou, from their hearts to their souls to the bottoms of their bare feet, it's no secret that tourists and locals alike love this folk fest." - KELLY DOODY - CALGARY HERALD
