Events Description


Chill under the big Alberta sky at the picturesque Prince’s Island Park and revel in live concerts with a diverse collection of enticing Canadian artists. Featuring performances by Lido Pimienta, Dan Mangan, Jim Cuddy, Cowboy Junkies, Charlotte Cardin, Whitehorse, and many more! Prep your blankets and tarps and get ready to groove at Summer Serenades!

The Calgary Folk Music Festival’s 42nd annual event will look different in 2021. Rather than a multi-staged festival, we’re producing an outdoor concert series, Summer Serenades, presented by ATB, at Prince’s Island Park July 22 – 28.

Concerts are on the mainstage only and the usual festival amenities: family area, artisan zone and multiple stages will not be activated. Summer Serenades runs for 7 days, with 9 concert blocks. An event ticket entitles you to a 6 x 8 plot that can accommodate up to 4 adults and 2 children grouped in zones.

There will be a number of food trucks for you to choose from, including vegetarian, Halal, and gluten free options.

Mandatory masking and social distancing protocols will be in effect throughout the grounds.


Tickets :

$100 – $550, Tickets on sale June 18th.

Each programming block is separately ticketed. There are no multi-day festival passes this year.

Your ticket entitles you and your party to a 6 x 8 plot in a specified zone.

Tickets for the concert series are available in packs that allow for up to 4 adults and 2 children (12 and under) per plot. Youth (13-18) will require a ticket and will be included in the adult ticket allotment.

Each plot accommodates 4 adults and 2 children. Children 12 and under do not require a ticket. Each ticket bundle allows for a maximum of 4 adults and 2 children.
