Beginning in 1980 with one staff and 300 volunteers, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival has grown and matured to become one of the leading folk festivals in the world. Now boasting a volunteer force of over 2000, the festival is a not-for-profit society dedicated to bringing in the best of folk music from around the world.
The quality of the music and the depth of the performer lineup is the single greatest ingredient in our success. Terry Wickham, the producer, selects artists within a broad musical mandate. Our vision is to continue to improve as a world-class folk music festival. At the same time, we work very hard to raise money through fundraising activities and through soliciting corporate sponsorships to keep ticket prices accessible for ordinary families.
