2021 Cancellation

Why are you cancelling the 2021 Winnipeg Folk Fest?

We’ve looked at every option possible, but with continued uncertainty about the pandemic restrictions that will be in place this summer, it is simply impossible for us to move forward with orchestrating a festival of our size and safely offer our typical Folk Fest experience.

 

Why did you cancel the August events?

With still so much uncertainty around the future impact of the pandemic in Manitoba, on June 4, 2021, we decided we were unable to move forward with our events as we had wished.

Our team worked as hard as we could to make these events a reality, but we ran out of time to successfully plan a safe experience for all.
