Folk for Families

Children love folk music too! There’s no time like the present to get our wee folk in the festival spirit! Local family performers will have little ones singing, dancing, and learning, all while having fun.

We’ve got concerts just for our little folk! Bring the kids down to the Millennium Library on a Saturday afternoon to dance and sing along with great performers who have played under the Festival’s Chickadee Big Top and more. 

Folk For Families concerts are free and take place on Saturday afternoons at 1:30 PM.
