Transportation

The Winnipeg Folk Festival site is accessible by car, bus or bike! However you choose to join us at the Festival, we can't wait to see you there. Keep reading for some helpful tips on getting to the Fest!

By Vehicle

Birds Hill Provincial Park is 34 km (20 minutes) northeast of Winnipeg on Provincial Hwy 59 (City Route 20). This will take you to the West Gate. Alternatively, you can take Route 20 to Dugald Road to Hwy 206 to get to the East Gate. Parking is close to the Folk Fest site.

By Bus

Between The Folk Fest Express and the free Campground Shuttle we will get you where you need to go on Festival weekend. 

By Bike

Birds Hill Park isn’t that far away from the city – close enough to bike to, in fact! The ride from downtown Winnipeg to the Folk Fest site takes about two hours.

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, the bike path from the city to the Festival site is blocked due to flooding this year. Given there is also currently construction on Highway 59, for safety reasons we do not recommend biking to the Festival this summer.
