It may not feel like it just yet, but summer is just around the corner and so is the 45th annual Calgary Folk Music Festival!

Held in Prince’s Island Park, this beloved event is one of the most highly anticipated events and this year it will be bigger and better than ever.

“Get ready to groove to the musical magic of 72 artists from Alberta, Canada and the world during our four-day, multi-staged family-friendly cultural and musical extravaganza.”
