In addition to the ten stages of music to explore at Folk Fest, there’s Hand-Made Village to shop in, the Prairie Outdoor Exhibition to explore and delicious, sustainably-sourced food to eat from our vendors and the Chickadee Big Top stage where little folk can listen to children’s music and find many activities to take part in throughout the festival.
In addition to incredible performances throughout the four-day festival by over 70 artists, two special workshops will be presented during the event:
- Mitch’s Sunday Feast
In 2019, the Winnipeg Folk Festival lost one of its founders, Mitch Podolak. He will be remembered for his impact on the folk world with a workshop curated by his son, folk musician Leonard Podolak. Mitch was well known for his love of music and food, so the workshop fittingly titled Mitch’s Sunday Feast will feature artists Oysterband, Scott Nolan, Nathan Rogers, James Keelaghan & Jez Lowe, Allison De Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves and more.
- Celebrate 150: Manitoba Songbook
As part of the Manitoba 150 celebrations, which honour the 150th anniversary of Manitoba becoming a province, the festival will host a special workshop named Celebrate 150: Manitoba Songbook with a house band curated by Jonny Moonbeam from Red Moon Road. Each artist will play a cover of an iconic song from a Manitoban artist and one song from their own repertoire. Special guests include JP Hoe, Micah Erenberg, ATLAAS, Kelly Bado and Richard Inman.

July 8 – 12, 2020
Venue & Address :
Birds Hill Provincial Park – Hwy #59, Winnipeg, MB R3J 3W3 CA
Provincial Park Pass required, if you are driving to the festival.
- The Folk Fest Express is a popular, free bus service that runs every half- hour from downtown Winnipeg to Festival Drive in Birds Hill Park. It takes just under an hour and all you need is a ticket or wristband to ride!
- If you’re driving to Birds Hill Park it only takes 20 minutes from the north perimeter of the city up Highway 59. We encourage carpooling! Our parking area is divided into two lots – the east lot and the west lot – and both require a brief walk to the gate. Fair warning: be prepared for a short wait at the end of the night as it takes time to make sure all attendees get out of the park safely.
