Festival Campground

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.

Camper's Guide

Everything you need to know as a camper at the Festival. 

What to Bring

Make sure you have everything you need for the best weekend of summer!


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.

Campground Central

The place to go for safety and well-being services! The trailer, next to the wooden structure in Zone 1B, staffed 24 hours a day by safety volunteers, is your “go-to” place for information and services. If you’re not sure whom to ask about something, they’re here to help.


There are outhouses, water taps, picnic tables, bike racks and fire pits available for communal use. Campground shelters, built with reclaimed materials, are great places to gather, meet your neighbours and find refuge from rain or the hot afternoon sun.  

Save the Park

Environment volunteers will be doing “clean campsite checks” throughout the weekend, handing out prizes and high-fives to campers who are keeping their sites in order. They will also be asking you to tidy up your area if it’s getting messy. Be a champion for the environment and keep your site neat.

Campground Creation Contest

Create art, make music, decorate, host games, and do other group activities.
