The Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store is now closed.
Thank you for all your support over the years
The store has faithfully served the folk community since 1982, when it opened in its Osborne location as Homemade Music. We want to say a huge thank you to the supporters of the store.
After much deliberation, the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store closed its doors on December 31. With the change in music-buying trends, we've seen declining revenues over the past few years and have made the difficult decision to say goodbye to the store at the corner of Albert and Bannatyne and focus on what we do best – presenting live music in our community.
Although the store is now closed, we will continue to sell Folk Fest and Hear All Year concert tickets through the Winnipeg Folk Festival offices.
It is important to us that our community of folk and roots music lovers continues to be served, so we have formed a partnership with Into the Music – a longstanding, independently owned and respected retailer, located in the Exchange District at 245 McDermot Avenue. Into the Music will have a dedicated Winnipeg Folk Festival section and will run the on-site music store at the summer festival in Birds Hill Provincial Park.
