Catch Great Live Acts at the Canmore Folk Festival

The Canmore Folk Music Festival is a legendary summer event and the longest running festival of its kind in Alberta.   From August 2-4/2014, 18 legendary acts including the Cowboy Junkies, De Temps Antan, Dave Gunning and the Danny Michel Trio will give heartfelt performances at stunning Centennial Park in the heart of Canmore.  What could possibly be better than great music set against the backdrop of majestic Rocky Mountain scenery?
Centennial Park is an ideal venue for this spectacular festival.  The stage is surrounded by tall lodgepole pines giving intermittent shade throughout the day.  Nonetheless, festivalgoers should be ready for rain or shine conditions.  Available on site are ample car parking options, an emergency first aid service, a lost and found and a secure bicycle parking area.  Do your part and go green by cycling to the festival. 
Canmore Folk Festival Comes August 2 to 4

One of the longstanding features of the Folk Festival is the organizer’s efforts to include a wide variety of musical acts from all corners of the globe.  Whether you’re enjoying the folksy western Canadian melodies of JP Hoe or the Cameroonian inspired rhythms of Baka Beyond one thing is absolutely for certain: you will find yourself swaying to the music.  Check out the full festival line-up here.

More than just a celebration of folk music, the festival also showcases a great variety of local craft and food vendors.  Over fifty artisans and craftspeople will display their wares at the vendor village this season with an emphasis on fair trade goods, jewellery, clothing, furniture and art.  Fifteen food vendors will also be on site with vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options available.
