The Folk Music Fest returns for its 42nd Anniversary next week. The iconic festival will be taking over Jericho Beach Park for the weekend and is the perfect way to relax this summer.

Here’s what you should know about Folk Music Fest 2019.

First up is the music. We have to say, what we love most about folk music fests is that we don’t know most of the artists playing. Sometimes, it’s nice to just hang out and enjoy a wide variety of folk music, ranging from Canadian treasures to modern soul and even ‘America’s hottest accordion‘. Yeah, that’s right, America’s hottest accordion.

Guests are more than welcome to bring their own food to the festival. To us, a cheap picnic with friends in Jericho sounds lovely. Add in some great background tunes and you’re golden. No alcohol though. Not that you’ll need it- the official sponsor is the delicious Persephone Brewing.

Finally, there will be an artisan craft market for you to explore. You know, just in case you want to treat yourself and support local makers at the same time. It is a folk music fest, after all.

See you out there!
