Children 12 and under get in FREE! Families are the heart of the Winnipeg Folk Festival community. Many fans grew up at the Folk Fest as children of our founding generation in the 70s and 80s and we want to keep the tradition of family alive. So there will be no charge for children 12 and under when accompanied by an adult, even if they’re camping!

Children are 12 and under, youth 13 to 17, and senior is 65 and up.
