Announcing Our Brand New Main Stage

June 15, 2023 |

Main Stage

We are thrilled to announce our brand-new Main Stage! This spectacular stage will enhance your viewing experience with improved sight lines, upgraded lighting and sound and video screens hung on the stage wings. This new stage also aligns with our commitment to sustainability as it’s made of 75% recycled materials.

While we cherished the old stage and all the memories it brought us, we must evolve to meet the current demands of the live music industry and continue to provide the best experience for you, our festival goers. So get ready to experience the magic of our new Main Stage!

And yes, the Winnipeg Folk Fest sign will still hang top and centre.


Main Stage Through the Years
With nearly 50 Festivals under our belts, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to reimagine the Main Stage setup. Take a virtual walk down Main Stage memory lane by checking out the gallery below. We cannot wait for you to see the new stage!
