What is the Art and Animation Program?

The Festival Campground is home to 6,000 people during the Winnipeg Folk Festival (WFF), open July 8 -12, 2020. It is a vibrant and beautiful place in Birds Hill Provincial Park where music and community are celebrated. Many campers have a tradition of creating art, making music, designing games and other group activities – all in the spirit of sharing and showcasing their ideas and work. These activities make our campground a unique experience and we embrace this creativity and engagement from campers!

With the popularity of the program growing in recent years, submissions are at an all-time high. As a not-for-profit, registered charity we do what we can to support a select group of projects with a limited number of free tickets, help ensuring structures are safe for campers, advanced access to the campground and marketing and promotion. We strive to support a mix of new projects and camper favourites – however, there is no guarantee of acceptance.
