Volunteer Kin Pass Application

About the Kin Pass

The Winnipeg Folk Festival allows volunteers to purchase Kin Passes for their families, which are festival passes with backstage access and meals included. We recognize that many of our volunteers benefit from the enhanced festival experience of having family members backstage and that selling these passes adds to the contributions our volunteers are able to make. Kin passes are a great option for volunteers needing to make arrangements for the care of their children while they are on shift – priority will be given to children under 18 and adults providing childcare.
Kin pass investment (including tax):
  • Child 5-12 years $30
  • Youth 13-17 years $160
  • Adult $330
