The first time you hear someone yell “Happy Folk Fest!” followed by a roar of cheers that rolls across the campground, you’ll feel right at home.
The Festival Campground is a community of 6,000 that pops up in the middle of a prairie field for five days in July. It’s a wonderfully expressive environment created by all who participate. Campers make art and music, decorate their campsites (and themselves!) and share food, stories and experiences. It’s a beautifully organic community where lifelong friends and lasting memories are made.
There are outhouses, portable toilets, water taps, picnic tables, bike racks, shelters and fire pits are available for communal use.
Safety volunteers (in blue vests) operate around the clock - literally 24 hours a day - patrolling the campground to ensure everyone is having a safe and positive time.
